HI. Hoping to update current logo (logo 5 below)  It would be great if it could have  colors similar  to the volkswagon logo (also below). the look of the volkswagon logo is also pretty good (shadows, a bit of 3d while still looking medical and professional) the design of example 3 is not ours but we like. Lettering like New York Times or apple gloss might look good. You guys are the experts. the designs so far have been amazing. Thanks for your time, Dr. O.
