      Dear Designers,

      Congratulations. You have made it to the final round.

      Up until now I have asked you to be sober and focus on black & white. This allowed me to make a better comparison and grasp the essence of the logo without being distracted.

      Now the time has come to show the wide range of possibilities of your proposed logo for a range of uses (eg on business cards, etc). Use effects, colours, etc.

      The message is simple, sell your logo.

      I see many concepts using the "initials" but not bringing anything new to the table. Please try to be creative. Tx

      i think it goes back to the CH himself if he likes it and does not care about similarities then thats it. if the question is, are they similar ? the concept yes, the design no. if i was in the CH shoes if I like it i would take it. anyway its too early to for the CH to choose let him see all the other design maybe someone would create something wow and he takes it, anyway good luck to all.
      as for me i like mine :) and #52

      Similar but not the same. The MH of markus hind has the H as a negative plus the corners are rounded as opposed to #29. Very good design btw, you could find similarities between a lot of designs it's the small differences that make them stand apart. Good luck all.

      Hello Ajikriwil,

      I see some similarity between #29 and the logo on the site you mentioned. What does the rest of the community think?
