Phoenix Graphic Design
Graphic Design. The design and colors of AltHash’s logo embody the company’s blockchain goals. The hexagonal or beehive shape represents the network effect AltHash seeks to achieve. Moreover, commentators have described the leading cryptocurrency market as a six-sided network in which each side (developers, merchants, customers, etc.) strengthens one or more of the others in a continuous cycle.
The hash symbol within the graphic design refers to “hashing,” which is the transformation of a string of characters of any length into a representative fixed-length output. This transformation is accomplished by running the input string through a hashing algorithm.
The logo’s background colors, blue and turquoise, suggest peace and clarity. The color association with the ocean evokes a sense of calm. We selected white for the hash mark because of the color’s many positive connotations: innocence, purity, goodness, cleanliness. When people see white, they think of untouched snow or an angel’s flowing robes. In the case of high-tech products like ours, white conveys a reassuring sense of simplicity.
