Stefan submitted a very strong initial design. In this contest, there were only three other strong submissions. Had Stefan left his original design in it's initial state, he would not have won the contest. Stefan was responsive to changes that he was requested to make and worked diligently to complete the project.
Even in the end it was difficult to choose as it came down to Stefan and another solid design. It was a coin toss between those final two submissions. Stefan was able to create an attractive main logo and provided an alternate logo as well.
Communication and dedication to the project were the two best qualities that Stefan displayed. I would not hesitate to have Stefan work on another project for us in the future.
