      Please also note that with Vector logos they can easily be resized to fit business cards, fliers, even billboards.

      #45 and #46 have the right idea. The ones that we eliminated today were either too complicated e.g. #41 or used too many colors/gradients e.g. #43.

      Hey Guys - OK they have changed the way contests go, so I didn't have all the fields to fill in like usual. But here's the deal.

      CorkCount.com is a site that will be used to track your personal wine favorites etc. We want the logo to convey wine/cork. The closest design right now is #24-#27. We like the simplicity of that and the font looks very professional/classy.

      We want a simple icon (and text) for the logo that will be usable on Business cards as well as web. The icon part of the logo should stand on its own and give a good "wine" feel.

      Possibly a simple pile of corks stacking up, a bottle of wine with some corks laying in front of it, etc.

      Should be simple though. Let's stick to the icon on the left of the text like #24 and keep the number of lines/shapes minimal while still conveying wine/cork

      Additionally, we want a classy font, but not anything with serifs etc. Should look modern/clean/classy all around.

      Please let us know if you have any other questions

      Do you have any specific feedback or imagery to suggest? The brief is a bit lacking in detail.

      Hey guys, most of these logos are too big and will not work well as a web site/business card logo, try keeping them inline (image to left or right of text) and a more compact/stylish icon/image

      #24, #25, and #26 are probably the closest to what we are looking for. We are looking for a stylish image/font combination similar to this
