Citizens State Bank (formerly The Citizens State Bank of Ouray) had a dated, inconsistent, and un-memorable brand. Our Goal: Create a consistent and recognizable image for the bank and it’s branches that conveys the message that Citizens State Bank is a local, community oriented bank with a strong 100 year history that facilitates trust and growth into the future by offering services that live up to the needs of today and tomorrow. Services included in-depth market survey and research, logo design, stationary & debit card design, signage, apparel, ads and marketing materials, & digital brand style guide.
Tyrel Lawson, the owner of Kahil Winery and winemaker for Two Rivers Winery, Colterris came to us to design the label for his Malbec wine. His love for fishing is represented in the label by incorporating an illustrated Cahill fly into the design. We worked with an earthy color palette, a cracked texture to give it a weathered look, and a little trout emblem to bring a natural, outdoorsy Colorado vibe. The labels are printed on a textured linen with the fly, trout, and name embossed. You can read about the award-winning malbec wine in this post by Bin 707 Foodbar.
Covered in the logo requirements stated by Montrose County representatives, the logo should stand the test of time by representing the area and its surrounding communities in a traditional, but not antiquated way, and should reflect the County’s mission and vision statements. The logo should be legible, scalable, and flexible, designed to be used in a wide variety of mediums including print and digital applications. The logo should incorporate earthy tones, not bright primary colors, and no curly fonts. The logo should appeal to a wide range of diverse viewers. In addition to these requirements, the county wanted the new logo to reflect the major founding blocks of our area, being agriculture (represented by our famous Olathe Sweet Corn) and mining. The logo also includes the major natural landscapes that make up Montrose County including the Gunnison river and the surrounding mountains/plateaus/adobes. Inspiration was taken from the sihlouette of Warner Point. The logo includes traditional elements to convey a sense of establishment, while utilizing clean lines and a timeless font to stand the test of time. It is simple, scalable and versatile.

Horsefly Brewing Co. came to us looking for some custom logos for their popular beer selection. We wanted the logos to reflect the brewery’s eclectic, rustic charm while capturing the distinct features of the individual beers. We also wanted to create a consistent element that would tie them all together…(the horsefly). The designs include hand drawn illustrations and lettering.
