Many thanks to all those who submitted potential designs for the Hauraki Naturally logo, and to all those who voted for their favourites. I'm happy to announce the results of the poll below.
We received a total of 13 design entries, and 33 legitimate votes - not exactly an outstanding voter response, but at least it's given us some guidance.
The criteria we were looking for included a bold, easily recogniseable design with a naturist theme and possibly some suggestion of the Hauraki area. Some designs included additional great ideas. We wanted a design that would look great on merchandise, in print, and online. All the designs submitted had some merit, and several might still be used in some situations.
So, here are the results . . .
First equal: Nos. 1 and 13 (6 votes each)
Second equal: Nos. 2 and 3 (5 votes each)
Third: No. 6 (4 votes)
Fourth: No. 7 (3 votes)
Fifth: No. 12 (2 votes)
Sixth equal: Nos. 4 and 9 (1 vote each)
No votes were received for Nos. 5, 8, 10 and 11
Congratulations to the winners. Your efforts will not go unrewarded! The less successful designs might still be considered for a bit of tweaking and adaptation for specific purposes in the future.
