Thank you again for your continued interest and designs. I have short listed my selection down to 8 designs, as of this posting. Although my initial instructions were to incorporate slight hints of water flow and airflow; the recent submittals incorporating more color contrast and subtle curves while maintaining a masculine image have been very nice. If there are other color combinations that you feel reflects color contrast, subtle curves and a masculine image feel free to submit those. On some of the designs, the 'Engineering, Inc' font size is too small and was difficult to read. Thank you and I hope these comments help.

Thank you for all the submittals; they are very good. As mentioned, please do not use the gear or wrench in the logos. The incorporation of symbols depicting 'airflow' and 'water flow' have been interesting; some have been subtle while others have been too busy. The use of negative space imaging keeps my attention. Some of the more recent 'basic' designs have been surprisingly very nice, as evident of my recent ranking. Keep in mind, we are a professional engineering firm with a warm, friendly approach.

In general those submissions incorporating some form of negative space imaging ranked highest. However, my field of mechanical engineering (HVAC) does not use the gear or wrench, please eliminate those elements. My field of mechanical engineering incorporates symbols which reflect airflow and waterflow (i.e. water droplet). Also, the society which governs are industry (ASHRAE) incorporates a double hexagon symbol (google ASHRAE symbol). Although this is not mandatory, a subtle incorporation of the double hexagon symbol is an option. If considered, PLEASE do not include 'ASHRAE' as part of the element.

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing LogoContest.com!

Here are some helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of our site, and your contest.

DO NOT FINALIZE YOUR CONTEST UNTIL ALL REVISIONS ARE MADE AND THE EXACT DESIGN YOU WANT IS SHOWING AND SELECTED.

1. Please rank your submissions or post general comments a minimum of 1 time per day while your contest is running. This is required should you want to request an extension to your contest and will produce the best results from our designers.

2. Once your contest receives 40 design concepts, your prize amount will become "Guaranteed".

3. Please make the most out of our messaging and comment systems.

a) Place general comments on this main contest page to give all of the designers your preferences and what you would like to see or not see.

b) Clicking on any designers submssion will bring up a page of all submissions by that designer with an option to post private comments pertaining only to his work. (Only the contest Holder and that designer can view and post to this page)

c) Clicking on the designer username under a submission will allow you to send a completely private message to that specific designer.

4. Please "Eliminate" only those logo designs that you feel have no chance of winning your contest. (Be aware that eliminating everything may discourage participation from the designers.)

5. Please rank the designs 1 to 10 and there are also options to rank Elements you like, Colors you like, and Fonts you like. This will help guide the designers toward the design that you are looking for. For the best variety of designs, try not to keep the same design ranked #1 for an extended time as this may result in copying of that design.

6. We require that you do not ask one Designer to use elements or concepts from another Designer. The general rule is that, if a Designer was the first to use and submit the idea in one of their designs, they essentially own that concept or idea for the remainder of the contest. We will remove any deisgns that use copied concepts. Requests or ideas you have put in your Contest Brief or posted as contest attachments are fair game and open to everyone. Concepts that are considered obvious will also be fair game, for example: a dog & cat for a pet hospital, shopping bag for an e-commerce company, a tooth for a dentist, initials for a lawyer, etc.

7. Once your contest ends and is in judging mode, any designer that is ranked #1 #2 #3 #4 or #5 will be able to upload any revisions you request. Simply rank a designers entry to allow revisions to be uploaded.
