The winner of the contest will be announced in the next hour.
On a personal note, I'd like to thank you all for your effort and response to my messages. I'd originally decided to only provide feedback on this public clarification board, but then saw the value in responding to requests for feedback. This private feedback (as those that corresponded would attest) was either of a comparative nature when multiple submissions were made or suggesting minor changes to bring it back to the brief. I enjoyed the interaction with the designers (even though somewhat time consuming considering the number) and feel it did give an improved submission and to that I thank you.
With under 24 hours to go, I wish to thank you all for your efforts. Please feel free to make adjustments and post new stuff until the closing time.
As we are rapidly approaching closing, and given a heavy workload through tomorrow, I'll not be responding to any messages from here on.
As mentioned below, I'm not the final arbitrator of the winning design as this will be undertaken by my peers with input from an independent (non freelancer) graphic design consultant.
I've enjoyed the rating process and trust this has been of value for those of you looking for direction (with multiple designs). I wish you all the best in the future and look forward to advising the winner soon.
My number is #601 , and I've designed it to be clean, simple, and as close to your brief as possible. I have the art in a vector format (Adobe .AI), and can make any and all necessary modifications you desire.
Thanks for all your entries. I've just had a last look through, prior to closing to rate and provide feedback where I can.
I do not have time to reply to all feedback requests, however I've started to become more critical and have re-rated a number, both up and down.
All logos will be reviewed by others and the rating is but the first step. I've scored ratings based on adherence (to our pretty open brief), identifying with our market (power transmission) clarity, clean and simplistic as well as applying the logo across many different forms (such as business cards, vehicles, uniforms side of buildings etc).
Wishing you all the best and thank you for taking the time to compete.
