Top Design

As many websites as drax0r and I have created this year (currently, kindly hosted by dentin - but we're working on a DR solution), we finally decided it was time to put our name to them. Problem was, we didn't have one. So after much cursing and gnashing of teeth, we finally settled on "HLM Interactive" a play on Hetero-Life Mate.

With that out of the way, rather that design my own logo, I turned to two professional graphics artists on my FL for a 'Top Design' style competition, with you, the voting public, to choose the winning graphic.

quicksilvermad has a BFA in Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Washington in Arlington.
stuf123 has a BFA in Media Arts and Animation from the Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg.

I'd like to thank both the designers for their time as well as their talent, and I'm sure they'd enjoy a comment below for their work from you. I also appreciate their willingness to participate in this contest. I thought all the designs were great, but in the words of Highlander, "There can be only one!"

The winning design, and creator, will be unveiled Monday - the polls will remain active until then.

Here we go:
