Wow! I can't believe how quickly some of you have created logos!

I just added this above, but I will also add it here; I would like to have a mark in the shape of a crow that can run separate of the logo. The mark can be artsy and flowing. It doesn't just have to be the silhouette of a crow.

I really want to stress that I'd like a logo make it possible to keep single common element, aka the crow mark, then change some other part depending what how and what I am marketing.

Thanks again everyone! I can't wait to see more!

I just want to say again that I am really looking for a logo that can be taken apart and still hold its branding. One of the other contests, Eric Bakken, is getting logos that are more along the line of what I had in mind. I do like #8 as it is the first original looking crow. I have played in the past with plenty with tons of clipart crows and find they tend to look pretty stationary and dull. Please have fun and make a new crow. I would love something that is flowing and stylish. I also do like the clean simple look of #3. Thank you all!

Hi All!
This is so awesome! I am very excited to finally see a couple logos that meet the style I had in mind. #24, #25, #27, and #29 all have the crow(although is does look a bit like a dove) separate from the wording. I plan to turn the crow part of the logo into a wax stamp for branding purposes, plus I will watermark it into my images, put it on postcards and often run it separate of the wording with hopes that the crow symbol will be recognizable alone. I also like those four because they are elegant, clean and in my mind quite tasteful. I am starting the think that as designers you are basically expected to read your clients mind and I understand how hard that can be! Please feel free to contact me with questions and thoughts!

I also do love the artistic crows in #30, #8, #34 and #22.. I loved the crow foot in #28 but I am pretty stuck on the crow silhouette. Thanks everyone! I love see all of your work! There is some incredible talent in this arena!

I know I am repeating myself but I really am feeling that there are very few logo's that meets my requirement of a simple separate mark.

#70 is the first to truly meet the goals i have in mind. I would really like to see more variations.

I like a number of the logos in the contests for Eric Bakken and Bianca Design.

I really want to thank everyone for the incredible work that has poured in! I am really having a hard time deciding on a favorite! Please don't take my rating too seriously as I am still trying to make up my mind and switching around quite a bit. Once again thank you all for the top notch designs!

Man, that's a nice logo #70 ! Despite the "crow" theme, I don't feel any sadness, but there's intimacy and happiness shining out of the graphics. Nice! Very nice!

Hey all! I just really wanted to thank everyone for the incredible entries!! I can't even begin to describe how pleased I am with the results and final outcome! I couldn't even pick! I had to set up a poll to let my friends and favorite clients pick! I really can't say enough about the top four and I really liked the entire top nine! Five through 9 only fell out because I struggled with usability and timelessness. Once again, Thank you all!
