#1 and #2 - Thank you for your work. These are too abstract for us - we're looking for something sharp and clear and immediately recognizable. We also don't want to be confused with KPBS.

We like the logos with the strong word treatment - we want to stay away from the initials so we aren't confused with KPBS.

As far as colors - we are open. We are looking for strength, as opposed to pastels and softer colors.

After reviewing and ranking the logos, we prefer the logos with a blue, teal, gray/black in them. Thank you for your submissions.

On 106 and 108 the bottom swoosh on the S is softer. Can you incorporate that softer swoosh into 104 and 110? Thanks.

Wow - we are really enjoying all the great work you are doing. As you can see we are gravitating to two types of logos - one that incorporates the initials and one that somehow reflects the idea of helping build organizations where employees love to come to work. We also want our logo to position us as a leader in our industry. Thanks for all your submissions - you are so talented!

@roktiv - I'm sorry to inform you that you are absolutely wrong. I don't copy anyone. In your case I could say that wolv is copying my idea. Zhao's concept looks like a chinese fighter, mine doesn't, in my opinion.

no, the only similarity is i use the S below even that i use differently than yours, other than that it's different concept. sorry but no copy. actually it's my old design, i modified a bit for this.

I don't know if this is the right way, but I would be more carefull with Carrion's entries as this is a logo way too overdone:

My apologies Carrion, but it's for both of you - the Competition Holder and you as a designer - to know that.

Dear Designers,

We have asked to extend our contest by one day since the President of our company is out of the office and will need to be present to make the final selection.

Also, we would like to see more abstract mark designs.

If using a wordmark design, please put less emphasis on the "B."

Thank you for all of your hard work and creativity!! This is very exciting and a hard decision to make.

Come on Ulaths, do you need to do this to win a contest?. As you may know, I can also search in the web 3 logos that could remind yours, but this is not my way of work, I prefer to dedicate my time designing.

Hi Carrion, it's not about winning or loosing in life. It's about getting better and better each day. Winning and loosing are collaterals of your skill improvements. I helped you make an improvment and told you to try to change that image.
I don't care if i win or not, but i hate ignorance overall. ;)
Take it as a friendly message.
