This is super important. We *don't* want you to create a new logo. We want you to play around with our original napkin sketches and find a way to make the "three horizontal blocks" concept feel memorable visually. The winner of this contest will be chosen based on the *best variation* of the Three Blocks idea.
The blocks symbolize MIDI notes.
Please take a look at the attached sketches and see if anything inspires you. Our favorite one is Bottom row, second from the Left.
Second favorite is the red/blue image, bottom row (3 notes).
I'm also attaching a screenshot of the actual software where the logo will be displayed in the top right. Your logo must look fantastic inside the software itself - that's where people will see it the most often.
Your goal is to create the best rendering of the Three Blocks symbol using your favorite logo font (don't use ours). Also, please consider the fact that this logo will need to be shown in the Mac OS X Dock as a square icon *and* a Windows icon. So, your symbol has to look great both in a rectangular logo and a square logo.
Good luck, designers.
