I was nervous about the process but early in the competition xxian submitted a design that changed the way I originally imagined the logo to be and it put me at ease. The design tied in all the elements I request but gave me a different perspective. I sent several notes as xxian submitted additional designs and every time xxian made adjustments according to my requests, was courteous, helpful, and continued to submit new designs as the competition went on. Ultimately the design I choose was a variation of the first on xxian submitted. I couldn't wait til the open contest ended before I selected xxian as the winner. I highly recommend xxian as a designer, great person to work with, and I look forward to seeing more work from him in the future.
