Hi all,

Thank you for many good designs. I want to add new coloring rule:

* Basic text color: black (but color accent like #6, #13, #9, #15 are OK)

As I described in Contest Brief, I want to use this logo in result page. It is very small size. Blue or red color text is difficult to read a little.

Hi all,

Thank you for your commitment.

I discussed with friends, almost all said "magnifying glass is good for memory this is a search engine". And I selected "Pictorial Mark" in contest brief. If your proposals don't have any picture, some items (not only magnifying glass) will improve impression to memory the logo.

thanks,
