Thanks for the creative designs thus far. I have ranked designers as #2 and #3 out of respect for the work everyone has put in to your submissions, and ranked some others following; that said, the DesignLab entries are presently the only ones that have been submitted so far that I would be happy with. If you're looking for a flash of creativity, the reason why I like the DesignLab submissions is: strong character; adheres to colour information I provided; imaginative without being cheesy or stereotypical. I know there is a day left, and I'm open to see any other submissions that you may be working on - keeping that information in mind will up your chances on winning me over.

Thanks to all.
