Subject Re: [IBDI] Logo colour

All the logo's you have done look great!

Here is my $.02:

I personally like all the primary colors (Blue,
Green etc.) and especially the "Fire" logo. But if I
had to choose just one alternate color (beyond "Fire")
for the logo it would be the DarkRed. The DarkRed2
looks too purple to me. (Then again, I am partially
color blind).

There is one thing I would like to suggest however.
I noticed that all the primary colors but Yellow was
present. Now I realize that the "Fire" logo has a lot
of yellow, and that is the one I like the most, but a
all yellow one would be nice. I, unlike the majority
of the world, prefer black rather than white
backgrounds. I feel it makes it easier for me to read
things. The darker colors would not work well on a
black background. Just a thought.
