I reckon we make a poll out of the top 4/5 mentioned and then everyone votes on those.

Gotta go with #16. Basic and to the point, as well as catches the eye. Sorry all the peaks with snow on them, look out of place, especially since Korea is pretty absent of those types of peak...besides Sokcho and even then, Treeline is right to the summit....White peak mnts don't fit here. Just an opinion.
I agree, with WES, creativity is great, but logos aren't about creativity, they're about branding...and big companies obviously know what they're doing (they hire professionals to do it for them.) Not a fan of 11 or the other more artistic ones.

So many opinions to sort thru, go with your gut, you've done well to this point...Good Luck.

Any of the 4 in #51. Normally, I don't go for colorful, but these seem to capture the upbeat style of KOTR. The others just seem too serious. These seem like they would make fantastic patches, even if they didn't get the logo vote.

I like the look of #35 the most, but #48 seems to capture the spirit of climbing in Korea the best. I just wish the "Korea on the rocks" wasn't italisized.

So many good designs. . . choosing the ones I like most reminds me of getting new glasses. Is this better than this? what about this? or this? until it's all a blur and I question my prescription!

I like the Korean flag colors, and I like it, when the design includes mountains, if it looks like Ulsanbawi, or at least a Korean-ridge. I also like when the website appears, even in fine print, as it's the key, really.

I would have liked to see more connection to rock-climbing . . . the letters of 12 were interesting. I liked reference to the original logo and yin/yang in 48. It reminds me of all the gu/gun logos with the blue representing the water and the red sky etc. . . in our case, blue for bruises and red for blood! 28 struck me a bit too. . . but my favorite I think is 24 (but in red for the "sun" and not yellow!) Now I will go read everyone else's comments and see what my non-designer's eye missed.
