Pick Dahua's New Wordmark (Unauthorized)

Here is Dahua's current wordmark(s):

The first two letters cause common problems of thinking either Dahua starts with an 'a' or has an 'l' in it, e.g., alhua or dalhua.

We asked our graphics designer to come up with a few alternatives. Here are the 6:

Number 5 looks most artistic. But when you silk prink a logo, graphics with end as a sharp corner, ie on the last a are hard to get to look good..

 

I think number 6 is perfect if Dahua were to make Cars. maybe they going to do a driverless car!!!!

here’s a radical idea, make the “d” look more like a d. 

they could grow the “d” a little every month, no one would have noticed, face saved.

Recent discussion about Dahua's logo on a graphic design website: What exactly makes this logo a design failure? - Graphic Design Stack Exchange

Some quotes:

The d has lost too many properties fundamental to a d and the Latin alphabet in general

Personally, I feel the major fail is not fully comprehending the western left to right reading bias ... So, reading left to right you get… an a in a circle, followed by a red j, then hua.

Regardless of whether the language employs left-to-right or right-to-left reading, in order for a word, any word, to be comprehended easily you can't ask the reader to "zig zag" mid-word.

I like this line from one of the comments:

This does not look like a Latin letter at all, but rather like a snail crawling uphill.

A snail crawling up a hill makes sense, the logo was meant to represent their US sales metrics.

Clearly 2, 4 or 6. They all point down. I'd say that would be a good US logo...

In fairness, this discussion was from 2017. Today, Dahua has far more pressing problems than their logo.

And back then they lamented the fact that no one knew how to pronounce their name - but probably not so much anymore :)
