It is important that the logo looks good in both full color and black and white. We would also hope to have a logo that is embroidery friendly. We want logo options that would allow the design to look the same whether applied to white paper, a clear bottle, or embroidered.
Since the name of our vineyard is Red Fox, we would love to see designs that incorporate a fox in the logo.
As far as additional design elements to consider, our area of Colorado has a few unique identifiers that draw a lot of tourists and that would be easily recognizable if represented graphically. 1. We are surround by Mesas. The most famous of which is Mt. Garfield which I have attached a photo of below. 2. Our area (Grand Junction) is named after the junction of 2 large rivers: The Colorado and Gunnison rivers. 3. Our region of Colorado is protected from cold by a warm wind that filters through a nearby canyon and keeps our climate temperate in relation to the rest of Colorado.
By no means should you feel that you have to include all of the above, I just wanted to include some identifiers that might work as additional graphic elements for a border/text etc.
Stylistically, we really like logos that incorporate a style similar to the cartoon-like "nose-art". If unfamiliar with nose art, it is a logo that pilots painted on the nose of their aircraft to identify them throughout world war II.
Thanks everyone for reading. Happy New Year!
