This is the 2nd time I've had the pleasure of working with egzote.com. The first contest in which they participated, their design was a finalist, and one of the best supplied. I reached out again to them for this new contest, and I selected their design as one of two winning designs. Their work was extraordinary. Different in every way from all other submissions, unique and brilliant. It was a pleasure and an honor to have them participate in our contest. I would urge anyone hosting a contest on 99Designs to reach out to them and beg them to join their design contest.

From Wikipedia: Cardea means "Goddess of Protecting the Home". In Greek mythology, Cardea was the goddess of health, thresholds and door hinges and handles, also associated with the wind. Her name comes from cardo, meaning door-pivot. The hawthorn tree was sacred to her. Ovid said of Cardea, in what is apparently a religious formula, "Her power is to open what is shut; to shut what is open."
Perhaps tie in the hawthorn tree or an opening door into the design, along with the name "Cardea Partners" or initials "CP," but any other design concepts would also be appreciated.
