The Tenth Level has been awesome to work with. First of all, his design skills are outstanding. His work is very elegant yet includes personality. Even more importantly, unlike many, if not most other designers, he took the time to read, understand and follow our design brief. Moreover, he was incredibly responsive to the many minor tweaks we requested. Many other designers continued to submit revised designs that did not reflect the feedback they were given—The Tenth Level always followed up promptly on our requests. To be clear, there were many other designers who were also very responsive and tried there best to follow our brief and make the requested tweaks. As a result, we ended up with many submissions we would have been proud to use as our logo. In fact, selecting a winner was not an easy decision but, in the end, it was a unanimous decision by our Board of Directors to pick The Tenth Level's design from the finalists we presented. We look forward to working with him again.
From the start of our contest and project Galih submitted some incredible designs, as the contest was going on he continued to submit more and different variations and his work ethic was truly inspiring, taking our suggestions and adding his ideas each design would be fantastic, but not stopping there he continued to submit more ideas, and colors and fonts...he truly wanted to create a winning design and he did---we knew if we picked his design he would send and give us all the follow up attention we would need and he has---Thanks Galih
Very easy to work with and great concepts :)

Lincoln Central refers to a specific geographic area in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. Among the defining characteristics of the Lincoln Central neighborhood are its parks. The largest of these parks is Oz Park, named for the classic children’s book and movie, The Wizard of Oz. The park contains giant sculptures of four of the main characters of the story, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and Dorothy and her small terrier Toto. The park also includes several “yellow brick road” paths. Links to more information about O Park are included below.
From a design standpoint, the logo should include heart imagery, preferably somewhat abstract there are natural ties between our heart theme and Oz, i.e., the Tin Man and we believe the yellow brick roads could be an interesting element. One option is a yellow brick road leading to a stylized heart shape. One of the attachments is a logo for a nearby home known as Over Oz. We love the elegance of that logo and are hoping for similar elegance.
