just to get the ball rolling: slightly too feminine, but right idea. The word Dermatology needs to be larger. Think of this logo as going on a storefront as well as letterhead and cards.

#2I would like to see the horizontal logo at the bottom as the main effort rather than what is at the top. The purple scroll needs more thought to make it express something rather than just a scroll. Please work on it.

I really like #3. Very classy looking. I'm also a Dr. with a contest on here.

I like #7 but would like to see it incorporate the stylized human of #1 instead of the scrolling above the name. I am not thrilled with the colors (although I suggested grey and burgundy) and would like to see other combinations. Thank you for all the designers efforts.

The "scrolling" on the #7 represents "layers" as skin has layers. I "can" try a human form...but I did not want to take the idea from "ufotofu". That's why I did an "option" without the human. Let me see what I can do without ripping it off from the first design. I will play with colors as well!

#37 i would like to see the circle somewhat more reminiscent of the sun, and in yellow. Then I would like the word Martin a bit smaller and Dermatology a bit larger. thanks!

#52 is the closest to what I want. Now, if you would make the word MARTIN a BIT smaller, and the word DERMATOLOGY a BIT larger (like the others), that would place the emphasis where I want it.

Still, the face looks a bit fuzzy. Perhaps if the line is a bit thinner, it will be more sharp?

#49 still is a possibility and it is a shame that #1 never took the time to try to hone in on what I wanted based upon my comments. Maybe someone can pick up on that before the contest is over? Thank you everyone!

just whittled it down to a short list unless there are other outstanding ideas. Even on the short list, I still wouldnt mind seeing some different color combinations to brand.
