    #77, #80: Good color scheme and logo; font lacks a bit of impact due to its flat design and dark-grey coloring (compared to black)
    #81: same as above, but I like the color scheme of the others slightly better.

    #84, #87: I prefer this color scheme and shape over #85, #86, with #87 having the better shape over #84 (due to the larger gaps). I am worried though about how the logo will look if squeezed into a Favicon (16x16px).

    #70: Please apply the following changes: Font in black (slight gradient to dark-grey is ok). Change the color scheme of the logo to something else (try to avoid red or similar, also I do not like this type of blue). You can submit multiple samples of varying color schemes. Thanks.

      I like the idea of the logo (the dots can represent information), but I have 2 concerns: 1) I am not sure about the current color scheme (sorry to be vague about that, I am not sure myself!), 2) the logo looks good at this size, but will it still be recognizable in Favicon size (16x16px)?
      Also the font needs a bit more impact; try to make it a bit darker, thanks

      Although I keep saying that orange is not my favorite choice, your color combination is not bad, I kind of like it. Could you change the following:
      - Try a different font for the large "SDR", less futuristic, more business like serious
      - Skip the "SDR" in the lower small text, "Information Trading" is sufficient as the large "SDR" is already there

    L&G,
    most logos that I have seen so far use part of the company name as starting point (most often the "S"). In general I am ok with that; however, I would like to see some more ideas where the logo represents the idea that information is exchanged, traded, or purchased.
    Please keep in mind that simple designs are best; the logo must still be recognized in Favicon size, i.e. 16x16 pixels.
    Thank you for your efforts so far!

    #74, #74: nice color scheme, I like it. I find the logo interesting, but I am not sure if it is the right choice, need to think about it. Please capitalize the company name words as mentioned earlier. Also if you could move the logo to the left of the text for comparison. Thanks :)

      This type of 3-D logo is not what I am looking for. Also the small icon (I assume this is supposed to be the favicon) differs from the actual logo, which makes it inconsistent. Font art is not what I want for the logo in general, i.e. the company name should be clearly readable in a type of standard font.

    #65, #71, #72, #69: I prefer the other logo
    #68, #73: I prefer #68 because the font of "information trading" is bold. Please change it to capital letters, i.e. "Information Trading".

    #64: Logo itself is kind of confusing. The color scheme is too dark and old fashioned. The font is kind of futuristic, but not matching the image we want to represent: that of a serious business. Also, spelling mistakes for the company name is not acceptable.

    #61: I find the logo design kind of confusing. Our customers should not need to think when they see the logo, they are supposed to recognize it and buy our products. If the logo already creates confusing, what will they think about what products we sell?

      #53: Colorwise I prefer something more with darker colors instead of yellow. Also yellow might not look good on printed white paper, like letter heads or business cards. It should stick out.
      #55, #57: THese logos I like better than #53, also the colors are more my taste. With #57, while I like the logo itself, I am not so sure about the grey-blue combination, can you post some other color schemes for that one?

      Please try to add some color; the logo should not be monochrome.
      Also, the logo now appears even bigger than before. Consider making the logo smaller so that the company name does not lose significance. I have problems to read the full company name so small the font is getting in comparison to the logo.

      #27: Color wise the blue is too light and the grey also. I prefer the company name to be in a single color, preferably black. 3-D and Shadow effects should be kept to minimum.
      #28: I do not like the color scheme used.
      #29: Too many colors
      #30: Please try with a different color than red, I prefer no red tones.
      One thing I like to comment that concerns all 4 logos: the logo, located above the "SDR" appear quite large. In general I have no problem with it, but in this case there are too many size differences. The logo is much larger than the "SDR" and the "SDR" is much larger than the "Information Trading", which causes the last part of the company name to appear insignificant and the proportions appear not matching.

      #12 is too generic and simple. It is basically a gradient background rectangle, which shows no unique character.
