Just an fyi...I'd like the word media to blend in somewhere or make the font barely noticeable. I want the true focus on Black Helix and not much as the media

DO NOT USE THE HELIX SYMBOL....Think of different ways to express what the helix symbolizes.

Hey there. Are you open to adding the helix symbol?

A helix (pl: helixes or helices) is a special kind of space curve, i.e. a smooth curve in three-space.

My guess if I was to use my common sense would be they symbolize inter-connectivity, cohesion e.t.c not that it really matters. He said he wants a your take on a helix, something different. Not that hard.

Would of been nice to see the other entries get recognition by the shortlist awards... marking everyone else simply as not interested does not help anyone. A decent turnout with over 200 entries, im sure some of those designers would of liked a few extra points...
