To be honest, I’m not feeling the flava of this lot… I kind of don’t mind #47 too much (but VAG Rounded + grads: just say no, kids). #44’s a bit nautical, it looks a bit like those ‘stay out of the water’ flags on the beach.

The signpost (#49) idea’s the best of the bunch (but I still think it’s going to be oh so weak when it’s used small on the web).

Shame no-one’s developed the badger idea… if only I could find some time…

Biting my nails to see which is the winning entry

I find only #48 to be of any worthwhile interest, but the green isn’t a pretty green, imo.

# Tom responded on 24th June 2005 with...

51 perhaps, but the first lot were the best I think.

# Faruk Ateş responded on 24th June 2005 with...

#51 is pretty nice, #50 is kinda not very easy to read…

# PlinkyPlonk responded on 24th June 2005 with...

#52 Oh. Dear.

# Ben Ward responded on 24th June 2005 with...

Of this batch: #41 works for me. I think the colours, they’re a bit different. The asterisk symbol is neat too. For some reason it makes me think of Adobe Illustrator, though.

# Rob Waring responded on 24th June 2005 with...

46. Brown and blue? Again, not bad, shame about the colours.

# Chris K responded on 24th June 2005 with...

I think the earlier batches were better, but not bad. Nothing really stands out to me. I was just reading the discussion about design cliches on Speak Up and notice a lot of those showing up in these logos.

# Luke Barrow responded on 24th June 2005 with...

Definitely #51. I think it’s my favorite of all that have been shown so far. Nice colors, good type, clean and simple.

# Jon Hicka responded on 25th June 2005 with...

#52 is genius too! Almost as good as the badgers!

# quis responded on 25th June 2005 with...

Good to finally see some some (slab) serifs popping up…

# Yura responded on 25th June 2005 with...

51 takes it.

# Steve P. Sharpe responded on 25th June 2005 with...

#53 looks like clip art, I hope it’s a p*ss take?

# Peter G. responded on 25th June 2005 with...

With a little work, #54 stands out as the winner. Great work on the logomark, unless of course you think the carets are clich™.

# paul haine responded on 26th June 2005 with...

You couldn’t use #58 for copyright reasons - the London Underground would be all over you. I once made a site map that looked like the Underground map and they demanded we take it down immediately.

# Iwu responded on 1st July 2005 with...

#53`s Ruuuulllzz.
Simple, yeah a little old fashion but it`s a killer :)))
