Sorry, not much time lately. I like it, too! Great work, Christian!

For me the current "red-swirl" variant does not look "right". The swirl
has a shadow on the background, so it floats above the DFSG, but in the
"red-swirl" variant it looks like the text is printed over the swirl, which
gives it an odd look for me. The grey swirl is solid and hides the text
under it so it gives the right "feeling". If the red swirl is meant to be
translucent, it should IMHO only be partially translucent, so that one gets
the impression of it floating in accordance with the shadow.
Regarding the color itself, I would prefer red above grey, but it should
be either solid, or only a little bit translucent.

Matter of personal preference, I'd say. I like the "normal" margins more,
but this should be the artist's, i.e. Christian's, decision.

The current version still has "unteranderem" as one word - I am rather
sure this has to be written as "unter anderem", even with the new German
