With all due respect for David Seigel's design expertise and close
association with the ERB, I find the choice of this eleventh-hour
'sketch' submission a bit disturbing. As I recall, the unanimous
consensus among those who commented on this list was that Suite 1 best
represented the concept of style. I fail to perceive the relevance of
the chosen design, reminding me as it does of a recent Nicoderm
commercial wherein smokers are encouraged to "gradually step down".

In any case, I'm unlikely to use this logo on any of my pages.
