Subject Re: [VOTE] Logo contest round #2
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2012 21:21:04 GMT
+1 #42

Some comments:
While really respecting the energy invested in working on this logo, it 
just keeps reminding me on fallen F no matter how strong I try thinking 
about raising mountain or Indian tent...
I tried to make it standing still by applying various transforms in in 
Photoshop, but no help. Sorry Julien :)
However, colors are perfect.
I agree with Marcus on this one. It would be interesting to raise it's 
temperature a bit and put it in #49's colors
