Re: “Logo and behold

Added you as a friend, gapthemind101 but see no way to send you a message directly using the site. That is twice I have seen you post your tag line and I am oblivious when it comes to water issues. I'd really like to know more about what you are talking about.

Re: “Logo and behold

Robert Crum & Jeff Gonyea: The city detail, the birds, the interior mountain line weights & the sun burst elements do not read well large and it is unlikely that these elements will be readable when shrunk down. The logo is very generic & does not seem to match the statement.

Tina Foster: Too many lines of similar line weight & lack of heavy contrast flatten the design out. On line weights to create depth: Thicker lines are to be used for objects in the foreground & thinner line weights as objects recede. Too many lines/line weights are so small/thin and may not reproduce at all when reduced.

Xavier Fretard: This logo may not work if reduced to black and white only. The design does not represent the idea of our seasons' living. The Kissing Camels or the Balancing Rock of the Garden of the Gods may have been stronger elements. The text is way to small to read if shrunken.

William Miller: A photograph is not a logo. If the art were dropped to only black & white and reduced, with so much 'noise' it may all fill in.

Tom O'Bryan: The elements are so small with so much detail compared to the mountain range when reduced none of them will hold up. Too much negative space around the interior elements & sky. The small white details in the mountain range will not reproduce well in black and white & will fill in.

Sally Piette: A pretty solid yet very generic logo that is not modern but rather very 1960's-70's retro. The exterior line weights around the caps of the mountains may need to be thicker to reproduce well when shrunk. Area for tag line is too small. If the text were removed would it work?

John Schloss: A very solid, vibrant yet very generic logo that could be any mountain. The logo does match the statement yet may be of such odd dimensions it may not work for many purposes.

Amy Sullivan: Very solid yet very generic logo that matches the statement. Unsure if it would work in Black and White.

Nethery Wylie & Judith Rice-Jones: A coold Pikes Peak. The line weights may be too thin to reproduce well when shrunken. Interior mountain lines may also be too thin to produce well. Too much negative space. Could benefit from more contrast.

I feel based on the logos the judges of the Indy chose, they should have let the public see all the entrants and let them make their own decisions.

Good luck to ALL the artists who will be submitting entry proposals to the city by January 6th!

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Good overflowing chips & salsa, good appitizers and good drinks if you are in a snacky, chatty mood w/friends. Stop there.

The mexican-esque food that is put together in a very fast food way is very expensive, very poor quality and very non-authentic.

To start the table off, a platter of soft and hard shelled tacos came out cold. Cold shells and cold insides. Followed by super-hot (microwaved?) plates of Burritios, Chimichangas and Enchilidas made 'on the fly' (E.g. slap contents into a shell, wrap, cover with sauce and cheese, deep fry or microwave).

For the sides, very small portions of seemingly canned, generic rice and beans.

The bill was outrageous and insulting for food and portions that were no better and in a few cases way worse than the corner El-Mexicano, Taco trucks or Taco Johns.
