#9 is odd looking, although I like the bulb concept, how it replaces the 'o' in the 'know' but is multicolor and unbalanced. Please try to stuck with 2 colors.

don't like the placed of 'w' in #10, #12. Like the implementation. #13 is too complex, please try to be simple. #11 try the size of the O same as the other alphabets in 'know'. try the different and creative approach for bulb implementation. #16 has the same comments as #11.

#14 is good.

#15 is unbalanced. try another concept please.

Really like the concept of the gears in the human mind in #17. please note you have spelled wrong its 'Know Thy Wealth', not 'know the welth'. Try to make money interpretation in it.

#18 to #20, really like the 'w' concept of wealth to make it the bottom of bulb. #20 like the cloud concept as well. Try more color variations.

#21 to #22, love the concepts of how e is connect to the word 'know'.

Thanks to all designers. its 2 days to go. coming them in and work hard. thanks

#8 i like it, but do not like how you placed the $'s circle trail, and somewhat is unbalanced. try different font.

I like the concept of #5, but the logo is too horizontal. try to make it proportional and balanced.

#7, #6 please try to be more creative and conceptual. thanks for your work.

#2 what it would look like if it is in white background? the bulb seems to be too small and when the logo is placed on the website, no one can tell whether it is a bulb inside the 'o'. please fix.

thanks.

#1 good start. can you change the font style to something elegant. and make the symbol and text proportional to each other?

thanks.

So I think that the "beard" concept was the wrong way to go... sorry amazing designers, my bad.

One thing I thought about what the "O" in "Know" incorporating a lightbulb, representing knowing, innovation, and ideas.... just a thought.
