“+1 For fitting entire idea to one theme.”
“+1 It says everything about Barcamp. Looks new and fresh”
A designer tries to convey an idea through a design. If others are connecting to the same idea, the design is a success. As a designer, I am very happy after seeing the above comments for my logo design from people who are strangers to me.
BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.

When I came to know about the contest from my brother, I decided to take the plunge.
