Hi Marlena:

i am the one who posted ayaka's logo for him,
and i m afraid what i did might have embarrassed some of you guys in a way

well, as i posted there 1st,
it was not that i was going to ignore other works;
i posted a link as just ONE possible basis for discussion,
or rather, just to show there are quite a few ppl who are interested in 
this project.

in fact, i even didnt (and dont) know exactly how many other works there 
have been for possible MKV logos/icons,
tho i did know MiChiFu for MCF :)

Well, but, to be fair, i should note that even now there is a "help 
wanted" article for the Logo / Icon in the project page
which read: "needs help badly from somebody making a nice logo for us. "
So, since i was (and practically am) an "outsider,"  i simply thought 
any possibility would be openly welcomed.

putting that aside, ayaka is young, and naturally not skilled like a pro 
nor experienced,
tho we must admit he has excellent taste;
His design is simple, chic, and elegant; not very colorful, but not too 
However, probably his sketch would have been polished a little...
I m feeling that especially now that i ve checked your sophisticated 
logos, Marlena.
so even if his idea is basically ok, the problem would not be "this or 
that?" but he would still need a lot of help
by other skilled designers, and imo, such a help should be highly 

On the other hand, even tho his idea is not best for the logo after all,
we might just as well use his icon as a part of web design etc. as a 
little accent piece.
Like today's OGM that is related both with that Fish logo and "Thor and 
there can be more than one designs around Matroska; nothing wrong about 

i mirrored your work in my page too:

Your logos are so sophisticated that, to my eyes,
any one of them can be the logo for a professional air carrier company :)

>I finally posted couple of my logo ideas. They were done before the latest "Japanese" version. Take a look and let me know what you think and what works, they are drafts so anything can be changed. I have tons of other ideas but I don't know whether I should continue working on Matroska or whether I should move onto the USF project if no one has volunteered yet. The link for the Matroska logos is: http://www.1000ad.net/marlena/matroskalogos.html  
>(I worked around an idea of an icon of matryoshka which you will find in one form or another in every one of the logos :)  )
