You guys are amazing designers! We went ahead and made the contest blind so that we can get different ideas.
It is going to be much harder to pick a winner but we like each person's unique way of thinking.
From all the designs we saw, we think we know which way we want to go. Here are the things my team and I are really liking:
*The Spartan helmet as the head. Preferably with the red plume but not necessary.
*No eyes on the Spartan helmet
*For the weapon, we prefer a sword (no spears please)
*Spartan has to be muscular
*And we are really liking how you added some blood but not too much blood to the logo.
*We prefer the spartan to be facing forward, not sideways.
*Lastly, we agreed and we prefer the name spelled out like this: AΞSTHΞTIC RΞGIMΞ.
Finally, we have not seen this yet, but we thought maybe a Greek or Roman empire building or temple behind the warrior would be cool. Those Greek pillars that the buildings used to have in the past might represent the Regime part of our name. It is not required like the top things I mentioned though. We really like the designs so far and none have the temple or building so it's okay if it does not have it.
Thank you so much everyone. You guys are really amazing.
