We are not sure yet if we will use the entire name "Crested Butte' or the initials "CB" so feel free to use whichever works best for your style (or both versions!).
We are a small mountain town in Colorado with lots of mountains, flowers, blue skies, hummingbirds, bees, and wildlife. Nature is very important to us.
The attached logo was done very quickly and is what we currently use. A logo could play off of something like this, but does not by any means have to take this logo into consideration. We are a brand-new non-profit environmental organization, so this logo is not important to our identity (but the new one will be of course!).
The flower in the background is the Colorado State Flower, a Columbine. Here's the link to a photo of a Columbine, and this could be a possible component to our design if desired: https://www.google.com/search?q=col…IQ_AUICCgB
One other logo idea that one of our members had: a fun mountain critter riding a vintage townie bike. It could be wearing a re-usable bag and have a re-usable bottle in his basket. Maybe even reusable party plates too.
Or, we could do a vintage bike leaning on old building with noticeable plates, bottle and bag. This would represent the progressive CB citizen making a difference.
