#2: I like the name stacked and the colors, but I am unsure about the man. His hand gesture suggests he is unaware, it may look better if his arms were crossed or to the sides?

I know this is a very late comment, but can anyone explore a design involving a crane? (the bird)

Could someone please create a logo with a board seat or chair? The sites purpose is referencing, filling headline CEO seats and Board Chairmen. Maybe a logo with an empty chair? or a board table with on seat not filled?

So, no more designs involving the crane?

We are going back and forth of what kind of design we would like. Of all the animals that could possibly represent this brand best, it is the crane, and we would like to see some elegant designs with the Crane please.

We are also interested in some abstract ideas involving an empty chair.

#26, I like your ideas, but I imagine a more expensive looking chair. Try to think of what the CEO of CocaCola would sit in.... I also like the logo with the man standing in the middle, but the mixture of the two icons doesn't work.

#52, love the elements, generic bird with horizon, any way to make it look more like the others, #35, 36, 37...where the font is cleaner and the colors crisper, more blues less black?

One last idea, I know there are only 2 hours.... can someone create a logo like the ones now, but change the imagery to two hands, handing off a baton to one another? Thank you!
