    @EllenSmith:

    Thank you for your submission. There are several issues with this design that make it unsuitable for use with the business. I'll provide you with some feedback so you'll know which parts were of concern:

    - Color palette is bright, but not conservative or technical.
    - Symbol is not clearly related to the technology.
    - Font is too generic, and not sharp enough.
    - Use of the outer stroke + drop shadow does not enhance the text enough.

    We are unlikely to select this entry as the winner and do not request any changes.

    @nelutu:

    Thank you for your submission. I think you were moving in the right direction with color choices and the overall aesthetic.

    It's also clear that you put some thought into this design, as I can see that you attempted to represent the "layering" process that happens when objects take form during 3D printing.

    The issues I see:

    - I am not crazy about the actual symbol shape.
    - I think the color duplication in the symbol part doesn't distinguish much from the font, and makes the whole logo blend together visually.
    - The main font choice is too round. Overall font choices are not really appropriate for a conservative/corporate image.
    - The symbol in entry 2 is not effective.

    While your entry is creative with an interesting color combination, we are unlikely to select this entry as the winner and do not request any changes.

    @Bluenix:

    Thank you for your submission. I think your logo makes a great impact visually. The black text is strong, and the yellow color stands out.

    I'm concerned that the 3D symbol is too large, and the yellow may be too overwhelming. That color choice may also make it difficult to fit within the website templates we are likely to choose. They'll be a more conservative color scheme.

    Although your submission has impact, we are unlikely to select this entry as the winner and do not request any changes.

    @johnrossgd:

    Thank you for your submission, John. For some reason, your design reminds me of a movie. However, I don't think it's right for our particular company use.
    If I were to suggest improvements, I'd say:

    - Try to change the angle of distort. You're showing a bit of the 3D view of the bottom of the letters, but it looks a jagged edge.
    - The "3D printers" font looks too small in proportion to the "Take Form" part, and would probably be better with a different color.

    We are unlikely to select this entry as the winner and do not request any changes.

    Thanks for the honest feedback. Though you mentioned there's no need to revise, I couldn't resist myself doing it. I am posting three newer versions. Hope you like them. Consider this as a re-entry.

    Your updates look cool. Vibrant color choices. It reminds of of Monsters Inc, or possibly another animated feature film. I'm not sure. The colors are similar to something.


    I think you made huge improvements here, although I'm still not sure they would work. BTW - I'd probably do the same thing. Creative process is fun. =)

    I'm thinking maybe the vertical height would be challenging to use is a more narrow website header.

    The logo looks great so far, I just don't think it has that corporate, conservative feel to it. To me, it feels like an animated movie style. Vibrant and bold.

    I'm not sure how to describe the colors that would be suitable. However, I would describe the ones you are choosing as "vibrant". Something more corporate, the colors would pop less. Actually, I found a link that has the sort of corporate, toned down colors I'm thinking of:

    @khaibudz:

    I like the industrial quality you've given the logo. The gradients may be too detailed to make it suitable for multiple purposes (website to biz cards).

    I don't think the stroke or the gradient on the text works well. Also, the gradient pattern throughout is probably too much repetition. Might need something to contrast.

    Overall, I do like the industrial quality that you've given it. It's possible there may be variations that we could use. In it's current form, it would not be suitable.
