  • Hello I have submitted #6 for your consideration. Please let me know if I am going in the right direction or if you want something different from your draft. Thank you
    • HI I like your logo....maybe the beach could be much more white and the frame erase...was just only an idea. Probably could be nice to have a frame like an atoll like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/de/Malosmadulu_Atolls,_Maldives.jpg/300px-Malosmadulu_Atolls,_Maldives.jpg or this http://splendidasia.com/maldives-maps-atolls/faafu-atoll-map-maldives.gif or this http://www.isolemaldive.eu/images/mappeatolli/faafu.jpg we are athe the bottom of faafu atoll ciao Paolo

    • Hi, Thanks for your reply and rating. Should I make the orange part white and remove the white border on it? Would you like to keep any orange?

  • ...what about to paint of orange the gray part ...the beach and the moon, and the 3 waves? ...I like your project....

  • very nice, can you try to put map of Maldives in vertical?
  • hello sir, thank you, i appreciate it very much :) have a great day... -friendnand
  • Hello Paolo, May I ask how did you choose #67 over #36 and #37? All of those designs are a take off of #36 and #37. Colors and slight changes were made but all in all its a copied concept.. Looking forward to your response Thank You

      |--| 67 is better because islands are more clear. ciao paolo

    • Hello Paolo, Altho #67 is better because the islands are more clear it is not his design concept.. So your not able to rate above mine or at all because its a copy. You may want to read up on copy rights so you may understand where I am coming from a bit clearer. Thank You

      |--| ...thank you .....this is very pity...I ll take in consideration your words. is there any thing that I can do?

    • no pity.. I have already reported this. I hope you can find that they are all copies no matter in what color arrangement etc.. If you want I can work on thais exact concept to your satisfaction with a bit of guidance from your end.. It would be a pity if I have to pursue this legally. Thank You

    • I didn't use Dskwkrs idea and colours. I took the colours from a photo of the maldivies and the idea of the islands CH gave it CH'S comment "was just only an idea. Probably could be nice to have a frame like an atoll like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/de/Malosmadulu_Atolls,_Maldives.jpg/300px-Malosmadulu_Atolls,_Maldives.jpg or this http://splendidasia.com/maldives-maps-atolls/faafu-atoll-map-maldives.gif or this http://www.isolemaldive.eu/images/mappeatolli/faafu.jpg we are athe the bottom of faafu atoll" as Dskwkrs did too. The idea to use the islands is CH's and the use is different Dskwkrs when ch said to use the iselands you can't pretend this is your idea Paolo how can you beleive him. I did not use his design. Actually it is not allowed to comment such things here but I am not reporting that yet because I want you to see my answer. He can report anything but this doesn't mean it is copy - others decide. THE USE OF ISLANDS IF VERY DIFFERENT. IT IS A PITY THAT I MADE IT BETTER AND DSKWKRS WANTS YOU TO HELP HIM USE MY IDEA - A FEW BIG ISLANDS Dskwkrs just envies me because I thought of a better way to use your idea for the islands.

  • can you try to change the color of the island from black to green (like a forest)
    • Hi Paolo, i'm sorry for the late reply. i hope this is what you had in mind. it's under #54 & #56 for other variation. just let me know if you want any more changes, so i'll work on it asap. your rating & comments are well appreciated. thank you & have a great day :)

    • hi paolo, can you give me some more feedbacks so we can put your likes to the design? thank you.
