    55 - I feel like maybe you didn't read the brief or the comments I have made her. This is everything I have beenm trying get away from. I am sorry for being straight forward but it has photos, squares and standard navigation. It is a nice design but just a combination of things I had asked people not inlcude. You're work is strong but I would suggest reading the breif carefully and looking at the example websites I had provided

    25 - very good job! good use of space and design...it is not very edgey or artsy like the websites examples I gave in the brief...but congrats on the unique layout. I'd love to see other ideas from you...time is almost out only a day left :-)

    26-29 are very good and incorporate many of the things I am looking for except they are not "edgey" they are very sweet and very feminine and this needs to be a balance of artsy/edgey and feminine - it's a tough combo to design! :-) these are solid though - just need something less girly

    #17 is blow my mind amazing. I need the logo to be "together" though - at least somewhere...I guess at top so it reads properly: spitfire details studio as one thought. more teal (I know you did what I asked now let's work in the teal color too)...the amazing illustration needs to be tied back to the logo a little more somehow - just create a synergy between the two. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE

    #16 - you're maybe on to something - please make the background more solid (less texture/pattern) and play with the layout some more. Maybe change the location and/or color of the flower detail at top and maybe the text is not RIGHT in the center (play around a little)... navigation needs to be more unique (both location of it and look)...but I like this a lot. Top 3 so far but needs some love - can I see other versions?

    #10 - thanks! please re-read the brief and my comments. I am looking for unique navigation and I am not a big fan of square shapes. Please see the websites I posted in brief as examples of the style I am looking for, thanks!!

    welcome and thanks! I like the black with the background peaking through - nice. Please remove the wood stage look at the bottom. and per the brief and my comments earlier to others: I do not want any photos on the homepage...maybe try a different font. A great start!!!!

    #5 - I like it but not as much as 4...I DO like how the design spills out from behind so the edges are not perfect. That font doesn't feel like the right vibe...I like how you used my logo/font in 4 (but would like without metallic)...I like the contrast of my font to the eclectic/artsy design in 4. It would be cool to see you do one with lots of black, grey and that teal (with POPS of white)...??

    Thanks - you rock!

    #6&7 - please read the brief again. I will not have images on the homepage. Also see the comments on here regarding stipping back the homepage.

    This is a little more glitzy than artistic - good use of color but looking for more eclectic/artsy. I am also looking for my logo to applied as a design element as done in 4&5.

    #4 is much more the direction I am looking for. My suggestions here are to try another version that uses the logo differently - this version is a little too flowery. (and the logo at the very top I can not read I don't think that top bar needs to be there at all maybe.

    The nav buttons could be more abstract - thanks for putting them in a new configuration, though - just kick it up a notch.

    I am not a huge fan of a "metallic" look on the font...

    overall - STRONG design...let's play with it some more please!!!!!!

    #1 & #2 are not at all what I am looking for... I had not provided enough info perhaps. Please review my new notes and the websites provided in the brief :-) less boxy. more abstract and with more "design" - the navigation is supposed to be unique...see brief...thanks! I look forward to new comps!!!

    for the homepage - strip away everything except one area for text and the navigation buttons. the homepage is ALL ABOUT the design. please see the websites I listed in my brief to give you an idea of my style. there will be no images- my logo should be used and applied in creative ways.

    homepgae: I want to be REALLY bold - see the websites I listed in the brief for examples of my taste. I do not have any images - was hoping to get creative with the use of the logo - the homepage will have a simple paragraph of text for seo - but I want it to be about the design - I want it to stop people in their tracks. I want the navigation "buttons" to be really unusually layed out/designed.

    please be as creative and crazy as you'd like - now's your chance to do something fun & BOLD...
