The designer did an excellent job understanding the need and came out with a logo that is multi-functional. It can work as a full logo or a stand alone icon. The design was polished and done in a way so that it can be used for multiple purposes and mediums.
This was my third time working with this graphic artists. The first two were contests in which his submission was among over 100 logos. This time I worked with him directly and he completed the logo within only 48 hours (actually sooner, but I requested some changes). He is extremely talented and responsive.
