Thank you all for sending images so quickly-I need a logo that can be modified for two different markets-weddings and events and a variation for fine art/travel. I like Liberty font for example for the wedding market-not tied to it-just need a little more frill for that market.My wedding market is almost exclusively young professionals.-the perfect logo would be a cross of traditional and hip (big order!).Location is what drives most of my destination weddings.

The travel market is primarily images of Charleston, SC-mostly historic and of course coastal images, garden images, families having fun, honeymooners etc.

To the CH - If you are looking for more entries please provide the designers with feedback before placing a 'not interested' on their designs. This way we can better meet your needs and wont feel like we are wasting our time resubmitting a new concept. Kind Regards.

Hi Mare and thank you for your note.. I am sending comments to designers whose images seem to reflect the broad guidelines I suggested. I truly am very appreciative of all the designers who are submitting-my own work load makes it very difficult to write intelligent meaningful comments on each entry. However I will try and write more open comments as time permits.

Hello, I would like to see entries with more integration of the text and the design. I also prefer the art work not be a closed circle-so many of the designs are exquisite inside the circle-I keep trying to erase the boundaries around the art work. I like the use of color to provide the "edges" of the design instead of a strong geometric boundary.Please no purples or pinks, the use of deep red is beautiful in many of these images. Thank you all, I am so impressed with the art work!!

One of the symbols associated with the city I live in are the egrets, cranes and herons. Does someone have an idea on how to incorporate oneof these birds with the flora images? Thank you!

One of the designers reminded me- kindly- that while some of the entries are truly beautiful, they will not print well when they must be small enough for a business card, beautiful enough for high end magazines and then large enough for a company vehicle. This also affects color choice with pink being a particular problem. Your comments are appreciated.
