Reply to WCI CommentsEdit

  • I tried to alter...but, the logo with puzzle concept becomes complex and conferred ...as when we use another puzzle piece one puzzle's one or side by side...with tricolors...
  • The logo design aesthetics is disturbed... As it should be minimal and universal....
  • My opinion: If we add the list of ideas in logo...then it would become illustration.It should be iconic.
  • color aspects: My opinion is...Using national identity as secondary ..for universal projects like wiki ...plays well.
