Thanks for the efforts so far, we are looking for something more architectural, so far these look too much like a computer business, they need to be more sophisticated and stronger graphically. We like, www.wallpaper.com or www.theplan.it, but we would like to see some ideas which are more baroque also.

Thanks again for all the effort you are putting in, #24 is starting to get in the right direction, but it needs work on the proportions, and some more subtle detail, which makes it all come together, like the little asterix on wallpapers logo. Also although the title has cad in it we are trying to focus it more on designers and architects.

We are getting closer to what we are looking for, #24, #30, #40 are in the minimalistic way we like, but they still lack a little bit of the finess of the logos we refered to before have. Again we emphasise the importance of a subtle and refined logo that appeals to designers and architects.

I feel we are getting a little bit off track, I think we are having to much emphasis on cad, most of the new logos look like they are for a computer company again. When we say it should be architecural, we do not really mean to do with the work of an architect, more to do with aesthetics of an architect, which are very simple and tight, we will give some more examples, such as - wallpaper.com, www.detail.de, www.theplan.it, www.id-mag.com

Getting closer now, still lacking the finess we are looking for, and maybe would be good to see some other typefaces.

#140 we really like the strong graphic style of this logo, but are not too keen on the line graphic. #107 We like the little graphic at the end, but think the font is a bit weak. #159 really like the font, but don't like the end graphic, could you try something else please. #152 Like the idea of the compass, but think the font looks a bit weak. #111 Really like the modular man, but feel the font needs refined.

#172 still like that type face, but still don't really like the graphic after it, needs to be stronger graphically.

#177 Looks good, but not really our style, too much like a bank or a computer company, should be more of a design, architectural logo, we also don't like the type face, needs to either be simpler like #159 or more like a signature like, #103

We like the font of #159, we like the coolness of #140, we like the little icon graphics of #107 and #111, and we like the way #177 holds together, but it is not aimed at the correct audience.

#186 Definate improvment, but still not entirely happy.

#190 #191 #192 The font used is Helvetica Bold tracked back -50 and is not unique. The symbolism that I have introduced might fair better and be different enough as not to infringe on any of the existing logo marks currently proposed. Also a pyramid is one of the oldest structures on earth and is 3 dimensional.

Hope this does not offend but I thought I should justify myself.

Thanks for all the new logos, I think we are getting a few too many cubes. #214 we like the colourful little icon, but the font is not well set out compared to the other ones.

We have had to extend the competition slightly, as we feel nobody has managed to hit the nail on the head as of yet. I will analayze the latest entries in detail shortly, and write some new comments, but basically what we are after is the same as all along, a very simple graphic logo such as wallpaper.com

#311 like the bold colour, and the more decorative graphic. #376 we like the paint splat thing, but not the cube, and maybe it can be a less circular, and more splatty.#373 like the idea of doing an organic cutout on top of the letters, but needs to be more bold and more decorative in the shape, you can hardly see it.

#393 I really like the refinement and elegance of this one, but I think that a lot of the detail gets lost when it is small.
