You are totally right so far! I don't understand why a bunch of clients buy an overdone logo without any concept or sense tho. It's their money and our time sailing in a non-guidelines sea to give the best solution for their companies.
We were overwhelmed by the number of entries and appreciate the time and effort of everyone that submitted their design(s) for this contest. We thank you for you participation and will be narrowing our choices down in the week ahead.
While we would have loved to have shared detailed feedback on every design that was submitted there was simply not enough time based on the number of entries, so our sincere apologies.
