Hello Heidi Joy,

First, let me say on behalf of the Glance community that we appreciate the
hard work you and your team have done in creating all the team

We discussed the draft logo at the weekly Glance meeting today [0], and
the general sense of the Glance community is that we'd like to request a
re-draft.  I'm not sure we conveyed clearly to you how important the
mouth-full-of-nuts aspect was to our choice of a chipmunk [1].  We could
tell from the video [2] that you started with the sample picture [3] and
worked from there to create something more streamlined, but we were really
hoping for something more like the sample picture.

The importance of the mouth-full-of-nuts aspect is that Glance curates and
stores virtual machine images and other services consume images supplied
from Glance.  Additionally, this would more clearly distinguish our logo
from that of other projects.

Thanks for being so willing to consider feedback!
