Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest as it progresses:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage participation.
~~ Rank and re-rank a variety of designs to get a variety of new entries.
~~ Ranking gets your contest noticed! Unless your contest is private, 1st place entries are posted to the portfolio page: http://logotournament.com/portfolio
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monitary means of showing apprecaition for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

More detailed information on how to get the most out of your contest can be found here:

Would also like to see more designs with a box or design around the the wording like in #3. Any kind of border would be great.

Love the colors in #11 and the oval shaped logo.

Love the motion in #9, any way to bring it together more, some kind of border around it? Could the box be more of a tank?

I would still like to see just the trailer tires on lines underneath #8

What about angling #10 up. More 3D?

Thanks

I'd like to see more logos encompassing freight or the bulk freight industry, with hopperbottom, end dump, pneumatic, tanker, walking floor trailers. Thanks

I'm still drawn the most to #8, but would like to see just the trailer tires and something to replicate a hopperbottom underneath and a swing dump gate on the back.

Still drawn to #8 but can't get any updates made to it. Really wanted a simple outline of a truck and trailer, preferably a hopperbottom trailer, also a swing dump gate on the back to symbolize a dump truck. I like the wording because it reminds me of very user friendly like google.

I really like #43 now that is has the raised dump trailer with it. I think this symbolizes more of the industry. I would like to see the truck separated more from the trailer, more of a semi and trailer look.
