I like logos that contain some type of graphic that suggests that In Focus Music is a music products and services company. I like color. I like creativity without being too busy. A winning logo will convey the focus on music theme. Thanks for your submissions!

I am getting some great submissions! I appreciate everyone's hard work and creativity. I would avoid the magnifying glass graphic as this was used with my old logo which I am replacing. The ones that catch my attention are the designs that suggest a camera shutter instead for the "focus" theme. BUT, please do not limit yourself to this design as you can see by my rankings, there are other concepts that interest me, too.

ALSO, because the website caters to people of faith, I would be interested to see some sort of SUBTLE Christian or spiritual imagery. Not mandatory- but if used tastefully your logo could become a frontrunner.

Dear CH,

This post was used on a different competition to highlight some rules of the LT (previously posted by Dazzle - Moderator for LT)

How are you doing ? hope you are doing great. As this contest is about to come to an end, and you will be chosing the best new logo for your company, i just wanted to have your attention to some important point that you might be aware of or might not. I hope i am not miss understood by pointing out this to you and that you understand.

When the contest ends and you have made your mind and desicion about the winner logo, the winner gets the 1st place, but the 2nd and 3rd place and going on forward, 4th, 5th, 6th , etc , each one or slot should be filled with a seperate designer and different concept you found second best, third best to follow etc.

This helps towards us designers ranking and also it is a way from you to show your appreciation to the hard effort and trails put from the beginning by one designer or appreciating a nice design concept put earlier by a designer that led to developing on right direction for others and you getting the best you could at the end.

It feels frasturating for other designers and pointless of giving all the top rankings for same winner designer, while those were just a small variations of the winning design and therefore the other places 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc are not filled with different designs from a different designer.

So i hope you understood my point i was just trying to point out to you here and all the best of luck in chosing your winner logo, there are really good ones out there.

Best Regards,

Kareem "

Thank you Kareem for your guidance. I wish all of the very talented people participating could benefit for their hard work and creativity but only one will get the prize. I have taken hours of time to produce demos of songs for consideration only to show nothing for it at times...its all part of being an entrepreneur.

PLEASE do not withdraw any unranked and ranked submissions. They are ALL under consideration. I will be making a decision shortly. Its difficult to choose from so many great logos!
