We figured that if it was that bad, our community could put together in five days of a holiday week a slew of better choices. So we challenged you. Others put out the word until last night, when we closed the door.
We at Technically Philly narrowed down the submissions to what we’re calling our top three. Now it’s up to you by way of a day’s voting.
We’ll count each tweet and comment as a vote. By 5 p.m., we’ll close the polls, as it were, and hire an overpriced accounting firm to audit the tally. Or just count ourselves. Oh, and we absolutely encourage politicking.
Wednesday morning, we’ll announce the winner.
Thanks to everyone who submitted! We hope you’ll see more of these contests — with better prizes to boot. For now, check out the three finalists below and let us know which is your favorite.
Sara used the Liberty Bell as the citywide image and offered icons within to differentiate departments.
Sara gave an example of its use on city stationary and business cards, too.
Perhaps a brilliant use of irony on our city’s frustration over being outshined by its younger brother up north in the last half century. And, if we can, we’d like to quote RJ from his e-mail: “I believe that the deeply, deeply professional and artistic nature of my entries speaks for itself.”
See some of his other drafts of his here — and yes, we do think that’s a flying cheesesteak fighting a dragon.
Former mayoral candidate Larry West says that without any hesitation Philadelphia should boast being the birthplace of America, with a proud eagle looking upward. If that’s not enough classic American imagery for you, Larry notes that those 13 stars do indeed represent the 13 original colonies.
This “contest” was all in good fun, so don’t worry about taking this too seriously.
OK, so who’s going to win this thing and our lame prize package? Tweet us or below post your vote in our comments.
