Maybe you could extend the contest, so you could give some feedback? This allows designers to hone their designs per your instructions.

We have had some discussions about the entries and have been able to come out of a meeting with a better understanding of what we would really like to see. We asked for a Contest extension of 7 days, which will hopefully be granted soon. I added a comment on #103.

In short we are looking less for an abstract made of the DEI letters and are more interested in a symbol representing "community space people lifestyle". No rainbow color effects, more conservative use of color. Symbol on top of the text like #88 and #103. Also, we really like the look of the text as laid out in #49, but the dominos gotta go.

While we initially loved the #63 and the DEI letter abstract, we have decided to have less emphasis on DEI.

Also, the symbol or graphic should not be an overtly obvious structure / building / skyscraper, but should more subtedly represent "people places lifestyle and community".

THANKS again for all the entries, so many great efforts...

Spaces = home, apartment, living area, pad, flat, condo, clubhouse, common area.

Note, it sure would be nice if we could edit our own comments, after posting

hendraku, your #139 is virtually identical to my #108. I'm sure it was unintentional, you do great work!
