When considering the range of work for the Obama campaign — from Andy Keene’s logo (done as part of Sol Sender’s team), to Scott Thomas’ applications, to Shepard Fairey’s plagiarized poster — we see room for creativity within a managed system. But so far, for Hillary, all I’ve seen are missed opportunities. All the arrow applications are flat and simplistic. A pointing finger rather than a metaphor for progress. A visual tic rather than a passionate call for action.
Here are three questions I see in cyberspace regarding Mrs. Clinton's logo:
Does it use white space in a dynamic way?
Is the color value of the red and blue too close?
Should the arrow be pointing to the left (Democratic)? Does the red read 'Republican'?

Twin towers with a right wing arrow displaying who did it

A triangle with the twin towers behind it symbolizing that the Illuminati is moving forward.

The road to hell is this way.
Such a crummy logo, with billions of dollars stashed away you'd think she could have afforded a real graphic artist and not a kid with MSPaint.

Pentagram, Penta meaningn of course, Five. Lets see. The 4 corners of the uppercase H and the protruding arrow out the rigyt side, creating a 5th point, or angle, if one were to outline it using straight lines only.
You migyt think the arrow would point left, corresponding to her political leanings, but my guess is they thought people would see it as a vote for her is like taking a step backwards, when today everyone is about Forward, Progress, whatever...
The use of red and blue I'm guessing they are hoping people will imagine that she will work with the other party to get things done for once instead of the bipartisan gridlock we've seen in the past...
It is very tacky looking. Which is good. I don't want anything that's going to help her even a little.
