Congrats to Santy to the win and his nice clean design.

To the client I would like to say:
I don’t want to be rude, but two weeks of silence and then asking me to change the colors 15 minutes before selecting a different design as the winner, while I provided you with tons of images in different colors and applications does seem strange to me.
I’m talking about your comment on design:

I’m quite displeased to be honest.

WouterZ – You are not rude at all, and to you I do want to apologize for several reasons. First, our company has utilized this site before, yet I am new to using it and wasn’t fully aware of certain protocols and expectations. I opened up the contest and awaited entries, assessing them each as I went along, passing them to my client. I did not provide feedback, as I simply was gathering the information. That was my first error; I understand now that feedback is expected and the artist deserves some interaction throughout the process, and that I am expected to add favorites to a shortlist. Second, and my biggest apology is regarding asking for changes and then choosing a different winner shortly thereafter. I was sitting with the marketing manager of the dealership when I was requesting changes. Not long after that, the owner of the company came in and told us revisions to the logos on our shortlist weren’t necessary because he had his mind set on a certain one. I was extrememly disappointed, and I absolutely would not have asked you to provide additional work it I knew he would come in and circumvent the process. Your work was beautiful and greatly appreciated. (And not for nothing, I wanted to utilize one of your designs.) Please accept my sincere apology.
@thatguycraig: I understand how I executed this competition may have presented a careless attitude. However, I do appreciate the hard work you do, and I admire & respect what you guys do for a living.

happened to me a couple of times, this is a competition and nothing is written in stone until you put a winner, I’ve been surprised too. But understand something “we are competing” and that things can happen. would be useful if each client understands the process of interaction with designers because it suits you to get a better result.

@EstweenOnFire:
Agreed, and you’re absolutely right about the feedback benefitting the client as well. I now understand the process better and will definitely use this resource more efficiently!

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate them along the learning curve to help us out as well.
