      Can't, sorry. First, I need other people to see the design submissions (the final decision will need feedback from others); and second I can't afford to give FL another $30 to do so.

      Interesting choice, one I would not have thought off. Comes off as too cold though.

    #14: Nice, clean, simple. The full version needs to have the the tag line ("Living out loud") incorporated somewhere though, maybe just another line of text under the title. Really like the font used here. I like the vertical aspect of the bear silhouette, but if I were to nitpick I'd say the bottom half of the silhouette looks a bit ... funny.

    #13: The banner-style approach would definitely be useful for some of the platforms we're targeting. The 'small' version with just the bear is rather uninteresting though. A combination of this full banner approach and the cut-down options from #9 would be great.

    General comment: In case you missed in the description, please make sure that you are working with vector images. The winning entry will need to be provided as an AI or compatible file. It will end up being re-sized and tweaked for a variety of platforms, across a wide variety of sizes - from at least 500px down to 50px - and needs to look clean (with some elements hidden or removed for the smaller versions, as per the description) at all renderings.

    #12: Not so sure about this version. Between this and #9, the latter is a better fit. This one is too reminiscent of modern US political ads, if that makes any sense.

    #9: Very nice, and a definite improvement (very clearly a bear!). I like the inclusion of both the initials ("BCN") as well as the full name.

    #8: Interesting approach. I really like the bear hugging the world, but I notice when it's enlarged (the lower left version) it becomes fuzzy. Not sure about the grass, it seems out of place. The word "Nation" is too small and hard to read, and I'd prefer if the font for "Living Out Loud" were taller (and thus again easier to read).

    #6 Clean and interesting. I like how the logo can be easily decomposed various ways. The bear looks too much like a cat though.

    #5: Very much like the combination of elements, especially the band around the globe, and the integration of the RSS logo. The font used for "Living out loud" is too difficult to read though. And there's too much highlight in the gradient used on the band, makes the test "BearCrawing" a bit hard to read.

    #4: I'm a big fan of the 'glass' style, and like the combination of elements here. Not sure about the font used for "BearCrawling Nation", the gradient looks a bit weird. Also the small version may be a bit too busy - I thought the headphones were feet or something at first.

    #1 #2 #3: Exceedingly cute, but too cartoony for our purposes.

    Hi there, #5 - all elements can be mix and matched for each application e.g bear motto, bear globe name, etc...
