    No love for Logo 2? I really like the use of Koffing right in there, as opposed to an abstract image of it.

    The koffing in Logo 1 is iconic without being attention hogging. overall it's excellent design. Logo 2 is cute, but the unpolished look doesn't seem to fit with this project.

    That was a tough choice, but I went with the first one. Simple and sophisticated, but it was really close

    Logo 1. It looks more professional, like a Hallmark, which I think suits Smogon's focused and intellectual mindset. The second logo was messy, too cartoony and formless. More of a kids school project title.

    Logo 2 looks nice but doesn't make sense for this project I think

    Logo 2.
    Many people will agree, pictures make an article more appealing (Last time I checked it was in the RMT rules that it makes your team look better).

    I like logo 2 because the creator is pretty and therefore his submission is too!

    One has the elegance of a legitimate logo, for magazines.

    The second would probably fair better as a website layout or something.

    Voted 1.

    1. 2 is great, just not perfect for the direction the magazine is aimed at.

    Logo 1 is much better, logo two's koffing appears to have just been plonked in there without any thought. Plus, I like logo 1's simplicity.

    Art-wise, I like the second better, but for a magazine I'd take the first.

    Mastheads need to be simple, clean, and effective. Too much flash detracts from the content. Logo 1 works best for this.

    One, the logo needs to be clear enough to get the message me want, to get across, but we don't want it distracting from the articles.

    Logo 2 is a really cool design... but not for a logo. Simple is best. Logo 1.

    Logo 2 is certainly aesthetically pleasing and well done, but I choose logo 1 based on how clean it is. Logo 1 seems much more professional.
