1) Our firm targets business owners. Therefore, in our opinion, the logo should look upscale and classy.
2) We prefer to see something on the logo that evokes the meaning of "maarif" which is wisdom, knowledge, comprehension. But it is not obligatory. We may still like a plain logo. Also, please don't make the logo very complicated to show the meaning of "maarif" since it will not be effective, if it is not understood at first sight.
3) We think "Maarif Medya" should be written on the logo.
4) We don't have any definite color preferences, so we think it's best to leave the choice to the designer.

5) The website wanted us to write more details about our preferences, I understand that but if we knew what we wanted, we didn't start a contest. We need designers to think that we can't think of. We don't want too much simplicity or too much complexity. We just need a good touch on the logo and hopefully something about the meaning of our company name.

6) About our rating system:
- 2 stars: Most designers do something by using 2 M's, this is the standard
- 3 stars: Luxurious design
- 4 stars: Elegant and luxurious design (This could be enough)
- 5 stars: If you can add the meaning of "maarif"
- Also, there can be internet, consulting, media themes. This can affect the rating. You know, whether we like a design or not depends on our tastes. So, please don't be offended if we give low rating.
