Dear CH,
i would strongly recommend that you rank as many designs as possible as this will encourage more designers to enter your contest.

the way things stand at the moment you will be lucky to get more than ten new entries per day.

well said speedlogo I'm already out of this contest there's plenty more to waste my time on. It will be interesting to see if they themselves come up with a winner;)

hahahahah. this sounds like a joke. No directions, no sliders, no info, NO RANKS! how are we supposed to design something for this company? By guessing CH needs and what he likes?

Providing some direction would encourage designers to enter, as it is, the brief is absolutely terrible, designers are not mind readers, and while there can only be one winner, we will only go so far in wasting time and effort.

sorry forgot to post replies. Many have not stuck to the color scheme I suggested. I would also like to stay away from waves in the title as well.

Hi ddoucette, you mention above that many designers have not stuck to the color scheme you suggested, but under your color preferences in the brief, you said "any is acceptable." I'm confused. We all are kind of stabbing in the dark here without feedback or rankings from you. Do you not want a wave in the logo at all? The name lends itself to that sort of imagery (as you can see among the entries). Your participation in the contest is vital to it being successful. I'm sure more entries will come in, but I'm not sure you'll find your perfect logo without providing feedback. Thanks!

Lindsey - the color scheme is right in the 1st comment :
"blue and silver if possible with black lettering"
