#78, #79, #87, #60 - I'm (president of company) not that fond of the 'War Games' computer screen type font, but others at our company kind of like it, so it's stayed in competition.

#78 and #79 - I did like how you provided a nice graphic and then the company name and slogan to the right. I had been asking for that in the main contest posts area, but didn't get much response. That's a pretty typical logo layout in my industry (pros and cons to using something like that, but wanted to see it.)

#60 - There have been some other attempts to leverage the letters C and X in a graphic. It's pretty tough to force it to make sense I think, but I like that you tried something. It's definitely unique, but I don't think I will use something that emphasizes C and X within a single graphic.

#95 - I like a number of things here - a) that you came up with something completely unique as compared to most of the designs thus far. I think I'm somewhat at fault for providing so much feedback and people think they just need to fine-tune the main 4-5 designs that the contest started with.

I like the introduction of color (the lime) to make things a bit more fun, modern, webby, but yet without being one of those flimsy, super thin, wispy designs with a swoosh through them.

I REALLY like that you tried to put the word Contextual into context by adding the corners. I was originally attempting to get some designs from people along these lines, when I suggested adding ' [ ] ' brackets around the word, but people just used text brackets and I think it'd need to be graphical brackets of some kind to jazz things up more and not look just like text and brackets done on a word processor.

Along these lines, I'm about to post an idea to the general contest posting page for this contest - I came up with an idea, but I'm not sure it can be done without looking cartoonish. If you recall seeing some movie photographer in a movie sizing up his shot with his hands/fingers, where one hand is an 'L' and the other a reverse 'L' to put the scene into context, that's what I was thinking, but I don't want actual cartoon graphics of hands/fingers ;) But some type of graphical L and reverse L that does something similar to what the brackets attempted and to what you've attempted with the corners you've got here. Thanks again - I really like the idea of adding 'context' around the company name.

Needs:

- more spacing between letters, possibly even exaggerated spacing/padding, as I'm going to request from other designers (already have) and will post to general area in that regard

- possibly thicker font - with the additional spacing/padding, I want to make sure the whole logo is still 'solid' enough to not get washed out on a white page background

- more padding near corners

This is a good design that with some small changes could be a solid contender.

Thanks a lot for your designs. I liked the lowercase ones the most.

#158 - I didn't care for the minus signs on the ends. Would have been nice to see the icon down on the left of the text, with the slogan pushed to the right underneath.

Thanks again!
