CHECK Design Brief today or tomorrow for my (poor) sketch of general idea of tree and door images.

YOU'RE SO CLOSE! I've left this contest open so designers can learn from each other. Many of you are very close, but not quite there yet. Here are some design elements that work for me: IMAGE FRAMES THAT WORK: 1. LARGE CIRCLE w/MIRROR FRAME EDGE: Jart (2859137) , Rikfan (2852084), iDesign Place (2844923) 2. LARGE CIRCLE WITHOUT EDGE: RYL (2853248) 3. MAGNIFIER: Rikfan (2855902), dragandjb (2858453) 4. DOOR OPENING TO SKY AND/OR TREE: graphite (2855948), iDesign Place (2855894) Please, NO IMAGES in foreground of door. Check the most recent Design Brief attachment. IMAGE INSIDE THE PUZZLE: NO to the Zen rock stack, hands and heart, handshake icon. They don't work after all. Here are some thoughts: 1. BLUE SKY WITH SUN & CLOUDS (and a path?) 2. BLUE SKY WITH PATH AND I (ONE) TREE (Tree of Life) Jart gave me a silhouette of a man on a bench (2859137) with a bike which is nice but too specific.

MISSING PUZZLE PIECE: It's important to show a clear space and the piece that fits OFF to the side near the fonts. If you put it on top of the image, it's harder to see, especially when the image is reduced. COLOR SCHEME: I'd prefer a design with possibly 4-5 colors: blue/cyan, magenta, orange, yellow OR blue-cyan-green. The blue on blue is too much like my 5TH ELEMENT LOGO. MISSING PIECE incorporates the full spectrum of life without being an obvious rainbow. Please avoid dark or dull colors.

REFINING THE IDEA: You are given me many good design ideas. For the puzzle, I like the idea of a bright blue sky (2854928), or a blue-magenta-orange yellow sky (see new document on my design brief that should be uploaded on Monday September 12). An alternative to the magnifying glass could be a door opening (see Design Brief upload on September 12) to a peaceful image. IMAGE OPTIONS: In the foreground of the sky could be a sun, a single green tree, or possibly a tree or stack of Zen rocks to symbolize peace and balance. Please check the Design Brief upload tomorrow. Thank you so much!

IMAGE IDEAS: I will submit more ideas for peaceful images later today. Please don't use the cartoon heart with the hands after all.

PUZZLE PIECE LINES OR NOT? Designs #2853190 and #2853192 show the same image, with and without jigsaw puzzle-piece lines. Are the lines distracting and messy, or do we need them?

SOMETHING BESIDES A BLUE SKY: I am not a designer because the things I see or think in my mind often do not work! What image can you think of that would symbolize PEACE harmony or satisfaction in one's life? Perhaps a heart, but not a hokey heart or common stock image. Sigh!

PUZZLE REQUESTS: • NO puzzles made of different colored pieces that don't create a peaceful image. It creates a patchwork image that misses the whole point. • NO white or solid-colored puzzles. Some of the images I uploaded are solid colored because I wanted to show the type of pieces I wanted. • NO geometric puzzles made of random puzzle pieces, spheres, cubes, triangles, etc. The idea of "missing piece" is when you make a jigsaw puzzle, there is only one piece that fits perfectly.

CLARITY: The idea of the "missing peace" is that my clients come to therapy feeling a lack of peace because something missing in their life. I help them discover what's missing to restore wholeness. Make the jigsaw image inside the circle something inspirational, like a photo of a blue sky with clouds or something that represents harmony. * MAGNIFYING GLASS or MIRROR: The magnifying glass symbolizes examining a problem with a trained eye. A round mirror is another possibility, as the therapist holds a positive mirror to the client to show the best version of themself. * NO heart-handshake icon. It didn’t work. • HEARTS: I know I said I didn't want the puzzle to be heart-shaped, but the jigsaw puzzle could include an abstract heart image.

Additional notes: This is a nice design, but I don't want to use a heart for the puzzle. Please read the Community Chat and follow the links for suggestions. 1. The puzzle should be round and contain an image, possibly one I've suggested. 2. The pieces shouldn't be different colors. They should form one image, like a jigsaw puzzle. 3. The tag line needs to be large enough to reduce.

HEY DESIGNERS: You are so skilled and as usual I struggle to art direct. Here are some things to try. 1. MAGNIFYING GLASS: Make the icon circle a magnifying glass (viewing a closeup of a puzzle), as I help clients "zoom in" on their solutions: Here are some images. Magnifying glass: https://www.istockphoto.com/search/2/image?phrase=magnifying%20glass%20icon 2. PUZZLE IMAGE: The puzzle should create a picture with meaning, the client's goal or reason they come to me. The missing piece must provide e the matching/missing part of the image, not just be a general piece. 3. SIMPLE PUZZLE IMAGES: The image is small so it can't be too complicated. I've searched some simple line drawings here: a) Simple handshake icon: https://www.istockphoto.com/vector/handshake-icon-vector-design-gm1357109652-431099087?phrase=union b) Kauai Heart "Love Yourself" Icon: Love Yourself Heart: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-illustration/love-yourself-cute-cartoon-heart-character-1679612041 Let's see if that helps!

Please check the Design Brief for ideas. The image of the missing puzzle piece needs to clearly fit and not be statically placed on top of the puzzle underneath.
