Subject Re: logo contest closed
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 17:37:18 GMT
Hi Doug,

I have a real concern as to how reliable the voting works when we want to
choose the best logo for Apache Flex, remember
this is based on quantity, not quality. The idea is bad.

Can I suggest that you should invite the right designers in Adobe, Leo
Burnett, Ogilvy, etc to do the voting and not us since
we are not truly the best person to decide. I believe choosing the wrong
logo will tend to give the wrong impression and purpose.
