The first round, to choose designers to final round, I think it's too urgent. Most designers wouldn't have really something far different with their original proposals. Which means the first round is almost decide the final logo, and there are only few days for collect ideas from designers.
Regarding the <Blind>, I find it cannot be changed after the contest begin. I think Blind is to avoid other designers copy the idea by customer's rating in 4~5 stars. And it will decrease more ideas that customer can see from others. However, when it's going to final, customer has already some thoughts in mind, there will be some designers can't change their ideas from their original designs. Customer would like to see different details showed by different designer, with the one he almost decide to select. It will be sorry for the others who keep presenting knew design day by day, but customer wouldn't call him/her to stop, cause we still waiting for something might come up and we'll love it.
I prefer <Blind> function could change in anytime by customer themselves.

My partners are a very demanding group of people, Vi stayed true to his word and made dozens and dozens of variations for us until we were satisfied with our logo. Great communication and quick to respond. Would def consider using him again if he was interested in doing another project. I know our needs were very particular. Vi was very patient with us and prioritized our requests over his personal time. If we do another project with Vi I would like to compensate him more, as he is worth the money.
Design was great eye catching and creative the very first try.

We are partnering with a third party app developer to create a safety app for students on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. We are in need of a catchy, yet sophisticated design to help with the branding of our app.
The app is designed to allow students to text our 911 center and also designate "guardians" to track their progress while they're walking from point A to point B on campus.
