Logos 1-3. I like these, except for the picture of the woman. It'd suit our cause a lot better to have a picture of a man or a cute drawing of some mankinis, and can you make one without a picture in the middle, centering the words.

# 5, I love the style and color of the lettering and the idea of a pink image in the middle, but would like a different image.

#5 and #9, can you give us some more options similiar to what you've put together. For #5, can you provide us with some different options for the symbol, for example, remove the muscle from the arms on one, remove the arms completely on another. For # 9, can you put the letters in pink, the man in black and the shorts in green, or some different variations of colors and different stances of the man.

Can you make #5 without the arms, and add a colored (maybe green and white inside) peace symbol inside the circle.

#9 Can you put the hands down instead of up on this one. I really like your most recent 2 as well.

#15-17: wrong type of mankini. We don't want the slingshot style.

What kind of 'mankini' are you looking for? Google only returns green Borat mankinis if I search for 'mankini'.

Like the idea. We need a good man logo with a mankini, but want the man to be more masculine, a little larger build, similiar to our first choice (#9) but want shorter mankini shorts. And it's mankini, rather then markini. Thanks. We'd like to see more from you. Use font similiar to #9.

Like number 26 a lot, but can you make the shorts shorter and more like the shorts in picture: http://defamer.gawker.com/215676/new-bond-squats-and-crunches-his-way-into-purists-hearts

#9 We're still wondering if you can position the man's hands differently. We like the logo a lot, but don't care for the way the man has his hands out.

We like the look of the second picture down, Sean Sullivan, but you'd probably need to do something different with the arms for a drawing: http://vglmen.blogspot.com/search/label/Sean%20Sullivan

So far, we like the figures of the men by far the best in numbers 28 and 29. We like the font and symetry of #32 and don't think we like the font in #28.

REALLY Like #34. Add line from under the man in #38, make it larger, and add to man image #34 so we can compare.

Wackman, we really liked the female symbol, the one where we asked you to put the peace sign in it (we still really like the heart one too), could you post that one again? We felt you did a wonderful job addressing the "cute" factor on that logo, an aspect we are highly considering as well. Thanks!
