To clarify, we did not ask for any gradients or complex designs. The request was for a text logo, simple and clean, narrow/medium font and preferably with some light rays. Most of the designs with light rays were a little bit cluttered and did not fit our idea.
Sometimes less is more.
Good luck in the future guys!
There are people who do not want a design, but only a graphic representation of something. Surely many excellent designs were rejected, but it was not what the customer needed. I liked some of the proposals I presented, but the owner of the contest did not like any. There can not be anything done.
