Thanks, Carol and Jen, for the feedback! I think this is more balanced, too. I'd like to keep this design minimal, so I'm going to stick with the two leaves and berries here...but thanks for the suggestion, Carol!

All the breathing room here completely echoes the peace message. And I love the more traditional holiday olive green of the leaves with the edgy charteuse.

I Loooooooooooove it!!! It is such a great idea and so simple, perfect. Maybe "2013" instead of "2014"?

I've moved the holly to the bottom per Ashley's suggestion - preferences between this and Version 2? Comments appreciated! Thanks!!

This is cool Kim! Just looking at the the holly together made me wonder if the whole peace sign could be constructed of holly - or would that be overkill?

Yes, looks much stronger! Hard call, but I think it either looks more balanced back at the top like before, or at the bottom, with the leaves angled downward ( So they are angled going SW to NE if that makes sense!) whichever looks more balanced to you : D

Hey Kim! Like Nice work. But with that said, I feel like maybe the holly leaves should be lower on the peace sign and pointing upward. Or maybe not...what do yo think?

I love how modern this is, Kim! I would love to see the holly and berry without the hairline rule, to keep it more consistent with the flat white and chartreuse. It's a great design - very fresh and fun!!
