Content details


A logo represent our Texas based land surveying company - Cross Texas Land Services or CTLS. Land Surveyors were the explorers and frontiersmen who mapped out this great Country and State in which we live. We want something that embodies that spirit! We would really like love to have the logo incorporate a compass rose but here are a few things to think about: 1. No Cartoons - we want it to be playful but not cheap or childlike 2. The typeface should be clear, simple and bold. We want something that stands out. Careful not to be too fancy. 3. Something that looks business like, classy, professional, and corporate like, while keeping a local to Texas flare. Please feel free to experiment with colors! The files we will require are: Need the best quality resolution and image type that can be provided. Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB) and png, if possible. Something that we can always go into and update slightly if needed, something will all of the layers. To be used as our primary company logo, on website, shirts, hats, signs, business cards, plats, business letter heading, car magnets, decals, everywhere, etc. Please no stock images or clip art, unless needed for the compass rose. Can use the Texas Star, that is not required, if the company may grow in the future to other states, we don't want to be bound to a Texas only logo design.
