I cancelled my logo competition as we didn't get what we wanted and we're going to use a local Graphic Designer to work with our team to develop our logo and our branding in a face-to-face style. However, I feel that you put in a lot of work as did four other designers and helped us better understand the direction we want to go in with our logo. Hence, I want to pay you a small amount to say thank you and good luck.
Thank you for design concept. It was actually very similar to an idea that we had already mocked up, and although our team didn't think the design was complete
enough to use, it influenced our thought process and hence I wanted to make sure your time was justly rewarded.
Please accept this project so I can transfer you $50.
