    What do think of the branding for the tournament?

    First logo - intertwined hands over the board - looks fine to me, and retro, like logos from sixties, and earlier: like logo for Bled candidates tournament 1959.

    But the other drawing reminds me on famous Japanese erotic movie:::

    After checking this link and then reading vandervelde's post, this made me LOL!

    From the US perspective, it has a "let's get naked and play Twister" vibe (right foot blue/left had red.... or right foot g2 left hand f5 kind of thing).

    Some graphic artist somewhere is laughing his @$$ off because he got away with it!

    Boy, and "unveiled" is right!

    Here' one. I especially like the green hair.

    Seriously Though, I wouldn't know how to brand anything

    I don't like it it all. Looks like something Jennifer Shahade would come up with, lol.

    I prefer that to the one they are using.
