Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage more participation.
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monitary means of showing apprecaition for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

1st place - 50 points
2nd place - 20 points
3rd place - 10 points
4-6th place - 5 points
7-10 place - 3 points
10th on - 1 point

Hey, Awesome start!! Some great directions in there.

1. For non interested ones - its only because I am favoring the use of a the chain/link imagery. There is no word mark that tells the story right now

2. For the favored ones. I like the chain/link imagery.

~~ It would be great to see the introduction of a third link as an option for the ones that only have two links and making "link product development" the middle link
~~ for the one with four links make one of the links a different color and the others one single color.

thanks scott

i like the directions - I like the formation of the chain and link theme and the emergence of #31 in the fact it implies a connection between nodes

Hi designers, I am really enjoying the diversity of the entries. Although the ranking system is necessary it also does not offer how close each entry is in being the top choice right now.

Thanks Scott

another direction for exploration for the logos could be around entries #30 and #49 where the ID process has been integrated. Especially #49 where a "sketch" or unpolished element has been introduced. Just a thought.

As an addition to the brief where "chain" and "link" is a dominant feature (which I like) its also about a process from idea to production. sketching, CAD and production design. I have seen logos that show a progression of sketch, wire frame and polished product but that is too literal. Again #49 is a new direction that is not too literal.

Thanks for all the awesome submissions and the one I will select is in the short listed group. We just need a day or so to review the best fit.
