I like the concept of design #1, though, perhaps the big ol' S in the middle of the forehead is a bit distracting.

Also liking #7, but would aim at a little blue-r tones and perhaps a graphic that moves towards a little more represenatationally "sinus"-y...

ALso like #3. Would the graphic look OK with the initials SIofSA?

Really impressed, am I. Looking forward to seeing the next salvo...

I like the adjustments made to previous entrants and the new entry. Specifically, I like the integration of the representational graphic and the text. The background appears a bit flat, though the "cleanness" of it appeals.

I also like the integration of the "S" as a nose and the color change of the face. Is ther any way to integrate the graghic and the text?

I will be working in the same office space as another practice and would like to keep something of a consonant feel. Their website is: http://www.earmedicalgroup.com/

Looking forward to seeing the next round of good work!

I like the concept for #13, thoguh it perhaps looks a bit aggressive (a la Transformers...). Any chance to soften it a bit?

Just to clarify, the comment made previously regarding teh "flat" background applied to entry #12. I would love to see that with a more 3-D effect.

Again, thank you for yoru continued efforts.

I appreciate the additional work.

#20 Certainly created more of a 3-D image. I like the shadowing and the black line, though the background feels a little blank.

#17 I like the minimalist approach. Reminds me of the early Macintosh adds taht apple used. I will need to have the whole name included in the logo. Also, I wonder whether the blue/black/purple/white palette could be used?

#9 Would also be very interested in additional modifications/concepts from you. This si the same reflection that I have for the creator of #7,9 and 3-4.

Again, thanks to each of you for your continued efforts. I'm looking forward to continuing the process and seeing your high quality work.

#14-16 are nicely laid out, but do not work specifically towards reflecting the "Sinus" focus of the practice. Any adjustments that could be made here?

As a note to all, I appreciate all of the high-quality work that each has done. I chose to extend for a brief period of time because there were a number of designs that I likes a lot, but wanted to see minor alterations to "nail it".

Thank you for your patience and continued high quality work!
