We are professional backcountry guides who make instructional videos for various sports. This includes backpacking, whitewater kayaking, sea kayaking, climbing, caving, hiking, and general outdoorsmanship. We want to make these videos available via our website and through youtube.
We like the idea of a flowing mixture between mountains, water and earth. We want the logo to convey the energy and enthusiasm that we bring to our adventure sports. We are not confined to a certain shape. Please make it sort of rugged, but still energetic. We want to convey professional expertise. Thank You!
Please see op.appstate.edu for a good example of something similar. Their logo does a good job of incorporating mountains and rivers and outdoors. We want color, of course, but its a good place to start.
