The two variables are the length of stems, and the arrow on the "h"
What thinkest thou?
UPDATE: background - trying to portray the idea of hybrid/flexible services. I believe I am more a developer than designer, but I design when necessary. I would like to depict this in a semi-clever, attractive, yet minimalistic way. What would you change about this to better approach this idea?

I like the bottom better
Top. The symmetry sells it for me.
I would say... bottom! What I would like to see is the arrow on the y to go higher then the stems of the h, b & d to see as a 3rd option.
Thanks @Anthony Lagoon @Terry Harvey @Jacob Tange @Kurt Madsen @Kyle Chicoine
It seems majority likes the bottom. Now please lets hear some critiques.
@Michael Spitz I would love your take on this
Hey Alex > I'm thinking you might want to try something a little simpler / more flowing... I like what you've done with the 'h/y' linkage a lot, but I think you could capitalize on it more. Maybe try it without the arrow, and focus more on how the letterforms interact.
I see that you've constructed the typography based on some general rules, but again, I think I'd just like to see a little more fluidity (maybe round out the 'r' joint & try to relate it better to the 'i'). Your 'b/d' are intriguing, so I'd probably think about maintaining those, and reworking the surrounding characters (maybe not basing them strictly on mirrored geometry) but more so that they compliment the curves. In any case, just a few thoughts. Hope they were vaguely helpful...
@Michael Spitz Very helpful. Thanks! I will continue exploring this avenue with your feedback.
the concept of connectedness interests me here. The idea of a hybrid, working on two levels. What if all of the letters were connected more? Also with the arrows, they are somewhat pointing nowhere... I would think a union of the arrows, in that the arrow points back into the text (energy flowing back in) etc....
I can also see how you used the curves in the b/d to make the curving between the h and the y - this is very interesting... is there a way to replicate this further?
I'm waaaay late to this convo, but this is super cool.
