For F11 we're trying to work together on the same concept,
we aren't doing competing ideas anymore.

Our deadline for a decision on the visual concept
(basically, how will we visually depict 'Leonidas') is
February 1. Do you think there is a way we can integrate the
idea of your helmet with a landscape of Greek architecture
for the wallpaper, and maybe we could integrate the helmet
in other artwork too? Do you have any ideas on what a
landscape with the helmet integrated into it might look like?

I do think based on the wallpaper poll results that we
should try for a landscape for the wallpaper, but that
doesn't mean we can't have a helmet placed in it or somehow
work the idea of a helmet in it? I like the idea of having a
helmet somewhere because Leonidas was from Sparta and Sparta
was very militaristic, but at the same time a helmet is for
protection so it's not too violent a symbol as you said.

What do you think? Do you have ideas on how we can work
