  1. Just got my exams over with... Here now (finally! -- left myself logged in while I had to study...) to say thanks to Yoshi and Sir Rols for a job well done pulling off this comp... Sorry to see it having to go through that impasse days earlier, but worth the trouble in the end... Congrats to Paul with his stunning Mumbai logo! Voted for it because of its simplicity and the striking fluidity on the contours made by the fronds... Yeah, certainly better... Putting subjectivity and application considerations aside, I had to wonder why a logo designer or agency can't pull off a brilliant finishing product (like Paul's here), when no one could stop them from exerting their audacity and grit to do so much to make a masterpiece of a logo. 'Cause I haven't seen that in a while (or have I desensitized myself?) Year-long clinical clerkship commences by June, will be going round the hospital from then every day and hoping I would get a break to return for next annual comp...
  2. Thanks, it's all good! All the best to Paul and his entries! IMO, brilliant logos in their own respects...
  3. He he! No biggie! One thing there might be that, when all the logo designs had to be zoomed in for Round 2, Logo A then looked a bit off, as though the illusion of eccentrically shrinking squares was further lost, looked less appealing.
  4. Hello! Here, I designed a few Olympic "posters" to go with my Mexico City 2032 logo! (Hope I got the translation right...)
  5. Lots of entries on the line! Another thing, though -- it seems that there is no function that would limit the selection of the entries in the voting up to strictly five. One could get away with voting at least six without reading the rules. Is there or has there been anything to address this? Just something to watch out for, not exactly a big deal...
  6. Woot woot! Thanks so much for the greetings! I thought I've gone into a brilliant kind of logo comp. And there must be no better logo comp than this, by virtue especially of how this was conducted, like previous editions -- from the announcement of the comp prompt to the quality of the submissions to the announcement of the winner (Borat's smile made a good touch on this one.) I'd like to thank and congratulate yoshi and Sir Rols for pulling this off for 12 editions. Paul's entries, including his Almaty 2030 design, are astounding. The use of brighter hues of cool colors in that logo makes the beholder indeed embrace the winter, and, perhaps, constitute a deviation from the explicit more common use of the "apple" or "apple tree" symbol. In his explanation of the design, I would concur as to its simplicity and its modern feel. I'd like to add to the explanation that featuring the mountainscape on the wheat-shape figure makes an allusion of a "window" or "portal" to Almaty, showing the city's identity and its capabilities to hosting such a massive winter sports event as the Winter Olympics. So, yeah... with such ingenious application on the design, no wonder Paul has made an excellent reputation in this industry because that is greatly reflected in his entries. Sir Rols is right. Keep up the good work, as always! I want to add, in fewer words than 10, Zurich is a toughie. (But, it has perhaps as much worth as Almaty to be a host city for the event.) My design went too simple, so much that I should've tried "selling this out" with an explanation of the logo and the application of it in venue dressings, banners, field of play elements, look of the games, etc. (But, that time, I had no space in my schedule to do those.) Anyways, thank you again for the felicitations! I'm ecstatically looking forward to Part 2 with Mexico City and Mumbai! Best of luck!
  7. Noted! *thumbs up, cause there's no thumbs up sign to insert here* Just saying that I'll do the reading when it's 2019 already...
  8. Yup, and the panel had to encourage this hypocrisy with such a costly Games to be in the books... But, how else do I know? I haven't read the bid books intensively.
  9. Hello! Wishing you guys a prosperous new year 2019! Here are the FINAL versions to my OFFICIAL submissions to this logo comp! I made a revision to Mumbai 2032, if you don't mind. 1) ALMATY 2030 2) ZURICH 2030 3) MEXICO CITY 2032 4) MUMBAI 2032
  10. Alright, finally! With the gold curved figure inspired by the map of India's most populous city, here's MUMBAI 2032, flashing its splendor with a heart (literally)! I have submitted my OFFICIAL entries for all four cities. But, in case I need to replace any of them with new entries on or before the deadline, I would let you guys know! Thank you and happy holidays!
  11. Start of holiday vacation to resumption of my making all of the four (4) entries... In the name of pixels (modern technology), and Technotitlan and Aztec art (squared step-like figures), I give you MEXICO CITY 2032! I must know how Tatil Design felt when they struggled finding how they see the logo design fit while using, instead of "Rio de Janeiro", the shorthand form "Rio". (Look at 2:57 - 3:05 in the video embedded below.) Good thing I didn't have to do similarly for "Mexico City"...
  12. Christmas break here commences on the 22nd and I'd be done with those exams from then. I may want to suspend making my entries for Mexico City and Mumbai until that date but I'm not that guy who would feel bad about goofing off just to do them. Just saying... ha ha... Look, I'm posting this in the middle of reviewing for the Family & Community Medicine and Otorhinolaryngology exams, due within 7 hours overall. Somebody stop me. Again, just saying... Cheers!
  13. Hmmm... Can I beat Mexico City 1968's design? (See, I have to ask myself that question.)
  14. Alright! Here's my OFFICIAL submission for ZÜRICH 2030, displaying an aqua-colored circle at the bottom of the logo that represents Lake Zürich located southeast of the city.
