Impressive! There are some great concepts here. It's still early in the design phase but let me give some quick observations: #19: I like the green swoosh and tree - the font looks a little weak to me - I do like the font for estates. The gray background - terrific representation of what I wrote but it might not work - but I'm not closed to the idea. #26: I like the oval drawing - very nice - the font is too uppity for this development but the oval is great. #33/#34/#38: I still like the green swoosh and tree (especially in #34) but "Hills" is probably too prominent. #35/#36 - nice also.

I like the creativity and concepts. I know I said blue/green for the logo - but I'm not in a box - if you think something else will work go for it.

Thanks!

I like the revisions. On Friday I will be sharing what has been submitted with the developer. Expect some feedback after that meeting. I'm also still searching for the "perfect" font. I really appreciate all of the suggestions. I'm concerned the handwritten or cursive fonts will be difficult to reproduce and clearly seen when used in out-of-home advertising. But, I'm not a designer so I appreciate your feedback.

Thank you again for your submissions - I appreciate your creativity and suggestions.

Thank you for the input and designs. The process is coming to a close and I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the creative designs. A lot of thought went into some of these that matched closely what was written in the brief - thank you!

After final consultation with the client, we will have an answer and decision by Wednesday.

Again, thank you for your submissions!

Hi MediaPartners.......

This post was used on a different competition to highlight some rules of the LT (previously posted by Dazzle - Moderator for LT)

" March 22nd, 2009, 11:48am
How are you doing ? hope you are doing great. As this contest is about to come to an end, and you will be chosing the best new logo for your company, i just wanted to have your attention to some important point that you might be aware of or might not. I hope i am not miss understood by pointing out this to you and that you understand.

When the contest ends and you have made your mind and desicion about the winner logo, the winner gets the 1st place, but the 2nd and 3rd place and going on forward, 4th, 5th, 6th , etc , each one or slot should be filled with a seperate designer and different concept you found second best, third best to follow etc.

This helps towards us designers ranking and also it is a way from you to show your appreciation to the hard effort and trails put from the beginning by one designer or appreciating a nice design concept put earlier by a designer that led to developing on right direction for others and you getting the best you could at the end.

It feels frasturating for other designers and pointless of giving all the top rankings for same winner designer, while those were just a small variations of the winning design and therefore the other places 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc are not filled with different designs from a different designer.

So i hope you understood my point i was just trying to point out to you here and all the best of luck in chosing your winner logo, there are really good ones out there.

please take a moment to rank your contest in fair and just manner..it will go along way when you decide to start another....simply because more designers will participate if they know a contest
