My initial idea for "a simple altar" was to stay true to the name itself - simple, clean sharp lines, a little color, and even a touch of the abstract. The altar idea was more that of a table around which good friends gather and enjoy one another's presence and ideas. Of all the designs - and there were many good ones - this design kept rising to the surface for its simple elegance and icon. The five polls I sent out always had this design at or near the top by many friends with web design and logo expertise of their own. In the end, the designer delivered what I originally desired - sharp lines, color, and simple beauty.
