:) Nicu, I love the modifications you uploaded!! They make the logo 
stand out a lot better and the sky looks less plain now.

Do we like this artwork straight/clean/clear? Maybe we could play around 
with a more painterly touch or textures?

E.g., while I stared at this too long when I made it and it's probably 
overkill, something like:


(it's a little oversaturated for sure; it needs to be tuned down) I was 
kind of going for a grainy-film look. The balloon idea made me think of 
the Smashing Pumkins 'tonight, tonight' music video [1] which had that 
kind of novel quality to it so I wanted to see how it'd look here.
