#11 like the dynamic nature of the logo. maybe tilt the ventures to the right to add more motion. like the lower case letters but would like to see a few more more lower case style options.

#4 solid design but font is a bit formal and reserved. maybe try a more stylish or creative option. like the sense of movement in the dark blue / light blue shading but would prefer as an inflection (or adoption) curve with dark blue on bottom and light blue on top. see if you can incorporate the secondary orange color. maybe the word ventures?

#1 cool and creative. could we see a few similar versions. another idea is to make the left side of the E rounded. maybe one version could incorporate orange. another idea is to start with one color in the bottom left and slowly shift to the other by the top right.

#16 like the way you used the V twice. pls make the evo font more substantial (thicker?) and the ventures larger.

JUMP BALL idea. does anyone want to play with this construct eVoVentures with all non-V letters in lower case or smaller capital letter font? we're intrigued...

we're down to the final 2. good luck. here are our comments:

#45 like the way the white letters bleed off onto the white background. is it possible to make the O white on the blue background. we like the idea of motion to the right. maybe make the right side shaped more like a bullet or a rocket and add subtle orange flames off the left side. to reinforce the idea of motion, please tilt the ventures to the right as well.

#69 like the way the evo is one continuous line. we thought of a way to add extra meaning by making the orange line in the E blue and attaching it to the letter. Then add a small orange ball on the tip of the now blue line about 1/4th the size of the big ball in the O. This shows we invest in small companies and help them get big. also we make small investments but add big value. I think the EVO lines could be thicker and the colors should be bolder like the ones in 45.

pls email if you have any questions. given the tight time frame, we've decided to entend the contest a few hours for you both only.

thanks for all of your hard work. tough decisions but #191 looks great but to be winner please use 45's colors. also, can you put the left color to fill the middle of the V so it also looks like it's going right too.

#227 Ventures is a little too thick-can you try making it the thickness between 223 and 227. also can you try 227 thickness in a greyish color so it doesnt dominate teh EVO
