Hi Charles,

My personal feeling is that Alexander 's work looks really professionnal
and nice. Matus's design has interesting aspects but there's something that
looks just unfinished and indeed "childish' for a lack of a better word: is
that the choice of primary colours and simple shapes maybe? Obviously
Matus' work is finished but I just prefer Alex's designs.

Well, the simple shapes and colors were what we called for -- it's a
characteristic of Swiss design. We chose to go with Swiss style, as it
represents simplicity and celebrates typography.
The choice of colors is greatly restricted by the guidelines [1], so we
can't blame Mateus for that either. (BTW, his previous proposal [2]
proposed different colors.)

Alex's designs don't actually follow these guidelines, and the designs will
have to be changed if we want to consider them (as we've posted on the ml,
g+, and fb).

N.B. These are my views only and not the ones of the BoD.

:) Alright. We'll keep them in mind.
