Skem99 created some beautiful designs. I thought I was going to choose one of them but when I asked him to consider a particular approach to the logo, the resulting design was even better. It felt like the winner immediately. My experience with designers is that you can immediately tell someone with talent or not. It either looks beautiful or the proportions are "off" in some way. You may not like a particular approach but a good designer will not propose an "off" design. Same with colors. Thank you Skem99!
