Hey designers! We are seeing some really great designs!! Keep up the great work... I can't wait to see what else y'all come up with. :D
I wanted to make a few quick comments/suggestions:
First, we want to see designs that DO NOT incorporate the fleur de lis.
Although, I love the fleur de lis, they don't have to be in every design submission. There are plenty of other ways to show New Orleans culture. For example, New Orleans is known for its jazz music, Mardi Gras, etc.
Secondly, we'd also like designers to steer away from putting the basketball in the pelican's mouth — it tends to look like the pelican is choking on it. ;)
Try to think of other things a pelican, who lives in New Orleans and plays basketball (ha), might be doing aside from holding a basketball in its mouth?
Let us know if you have any questions!
