General Comments: Thank you for your entries thus far. We are going to wait one more day until we give detailed feedback but here is some overall guidance:

1) We like the different colored "ad" part. This definitely needs to start out in some fashion
2) We do want some indication of travel (not really a swoosh) but more like #4 or an airplane, train, cityscape, etc.. please feel free to be creative as well.

We will start giving much more detailed feedback later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks

The design elements in #13 (cityscape) and #18 (airplane and luggage) are great. Exactly what we are looking for. Thus far they are the two best in our opinion and are very close.

We appreciate the design of the mountain / water in #1 and actually really like the creativity in #15 but is actually a little to subtle for us.

Thanks, we look forward to many many more submissions

Dear contest holder,

You're marking loads of designs as "not interested". It looks like you've already picked a winner. Are you still open for ideas? You might get some more submissions if you give more concepts a ranking.

It motivates designers to see many different concepts, not small variations, in the top rankings. For example, you've now ranked 3 variations of my concept on the 4th, 5th en 6th spot. I'm taking 3 spots with 1 concept.

You might also want to give a little more feedback. I don't really know what to improve on my concept at the moment, as it seems duminda's "luggage" concept is exactly what you are looking for.

Good luck on finding the right logo for your company :)!

With kind regards,

Robbert,

Marking designs as "not interested" is our way of telling the designers to focus on the currently ranked designs. Many of the "non interested" did not follow our instructions of 1) clear "ad" 2) travel-related design or 3) something creative.

the designs that are plain travel with a "T" logo or the word itself is not really interesting to us, hence the "not interested"

I think the top 3 or 4 logos are pretty interesting and we will ultimately change ideas back and forth. My experience with this website is that most of the quality submissions come in the final day or so, which is why there is not more detailed feedback.

Keep up the good work, we look forward to seeing more creative designs..

Everyone, please try to incorporate the tagline: travel + advertising = tradvel (or something similar)

Thank you

Okay! I didn't know you already have experience with this website. You are right about the best concepts and ideas coming in the final day of the contest. Your comment motivates me to come up with some new ideas though, as I now know why you're ranking the entries this way. Thanks anyway for focusing on concepts in the rankings a little bit!

Thanks everyone, we are getting near to the end. It is still relatively wide-open; this is what we are looking for:

1) word "Tradvel" "tradvel" etc with the letters "ad" distinct from the rest of the word (at least a different color)
2) the tag line "travel + advertising = tradvel" somewhere legible
3) the color scheme looks to be the top 6 entries thus far (#33, #54, #41, #37, #43, #72)
4) please have creative travel related icons (we want more than a swoosh or generic globe) the airplane, luggage, luggage tags are all great.

Keep it up! Thanks again.

All logos are in the running. IF we are "interested" then it has a chance of winning 1st place. We will have internal discussions after we receive all the submissions. Feel free to keep submitting til the final minute

Thanks

you guys really need to work on keeping your comments on your personal design pages... it's unprofessional to be discussing things like this here in the main area.
