    Good luck everyone. Competition bring out our best and our worst. For the CH, I hope you find what you're looking for. But my gut says that this contest will end up being nothing more than more 'inspiration' for you and your real design studio. I think you need to be reasonable about what you're looking for: a family of logos for your sites that somehow relates to ask.com and your previous Lexico identity. Please understand that that is hard for any designer to do. Those aren't just flaming hoops your asking them to jump through, you're also asking them to do it while whistling a song and knitting a sweater. As clients you need to focus and pick which of those priorities are most important and let the rest go.

    For the designers, don't give up hope, but please, as the end of the day, keep your pride. This site and the projects on it are more for entertainment than than anything else. If they don't like your work, then walk away. This is one of the few places in the design industry where you can say, "Here's my stuff, take it or leave it." Do your best and if they don't pick it, walk away with your head held high. If you don't think it's your best and you need them to tell you it's good or bad, then you need to try harder until you're convinced yourself and the CH's opinion doesn't matter.

    I'll admit to you all that I've watched this one from the sidelines. I could sense that this wasn't the simple contest it was promising to be. But my hats off for some really great work on here that will never be picked. Don't feel bad. I think the fact that your great work didn't get picked doesn't mean it was bad. In fact, it probably means the opposite.

    The best of luck to everyone.

    hey there,

    Thank you for pointing this out askSanik, i can assure you i have never come across the 'blackfords' logo before. As odhinn said its just based on the same concept of a letter in a fold, which if u look my entry #117 is what began to take me down that path having noticed a 'd' shape in the design. Given the amount of designs in that field, printers, publishers etc im sure we can find similar marks for every entry.

    I will withdraw my entry if required, as i cannot stand plagiarism/rip off's of other people's hard work.

    Thanks
    Mick
