Right now these are ranked by our top picks. We've commented on each individual designer and asked to see different variations of the current designs.

We're happy with the ideas that you've all come up with a look forward to seeing some additional ideas over the next 2 days.

You are all very talented. Thanks for working hard and for helping us with coming up with the image of Speak! LLC!

When I think about "speak" and what our mission is, I have a vision of nurturing people...of taking a room full of people and letting them escape for a day so they can learn, grow and become a "better" version of themselves. Whether the training is how to be a better manager, how to resolve conflict, how to handle stress, how to sell, speak or write better....we want to help people achieve more. That feels very nurturing and yet energizing at the same time to me.
We want people to leave our training sessions and have the skills to feel and become "better" versions of who they are...we want to help people reach their higher potential.

When they look at our logo and enter our website, I want them to have the same feeling. I want them to leave our website feeling a little bit better than when they entered.

I'd like to see abstract, rather than concrete. I'd like to see "inspiring" rather than business professional.

I want the logo of SPEAK! to communicate the message of "rejeuvenate, inspire, motivate, energize, grow and become..." when people see it.

Two of the logos that I like are spas-www.parexsalonce.com. I also like www.redmountainspa.com. I know they are completely different industries, but I like what they communicate and I like the abstract nature of the logos.

Let's try switching color schemes-maybe try some green/blue combinations, red/orange or brown/blues.

I think the red/black is too harsh-TOO professional.

Thanks so much. This has been a process of discovering ...and thanks for helping us on that journey!

Right now the first 3 are tied for first place. There are ideas from each of these that we really connect with.

We still have one day to go and the decision is already a tough one.

We sincerely thank each of you for your ideas and for being a part of this contest!
