-------------------------

May 8th: Thanks for the first submissions that came through.
I just wanted to leave a note to please stay away from any kind of "DJ or Turntable" imagery inside the logo.
The logo has to represent me as an artist and music producer, not just a dj.

**EDIT** Please Look at this Link Below for some Logo ideas and concepts that I like.

Sorry but that isn't quite clear, you labeled most logos as Not Interested without any specific reason or feedback and left a few up yet unranked...no specific comments?

Egg Design - I am still gathering my thoughts and it is too early to rank anything.
I will post up some sample ideas soon, maybe that will help things be more clear.

hi Justinmichael...
if you can give individual feedback to each designer, your odds in finding that perfect logo would probably increase. Feedback can be negative or positive, either way, we can use this guidance to point in a better direction for you.
thank you.

hei justin, yake the tiam and rank all the designs ... it is the only way for the best logo. Please do not limit your research to a font copied by other artists that you showed to us

tnx
