A different Ragtime revival logo

Back in September, the NYTimes posted a feature on the ad campaign evolution for this year's Ragtime Revival. I was looking at it today and found this aborted design:

Am I the only one who likes it much better than the one they ended up going with?

apparently. the flag one looks generic.
No, I like the first one better, too. The one they used looks too cartoony for my taste.
You are so not alone! I totally prefer this artwork to the one they settled on.

It's not even that I like the alternate so much, it's more that I dislike this one and thought the alternate would have been a better choice of the group.
Definitely agree with you. The first one is so much better, simpler and more elegant. And I'm pretty lukewarm about the revival itself.
The taglines in both versions are crappy.
