The Big Bend area is a mountainous desert area in southwest Texas. It is called "the last frontier of Texas" by many. The area is in a Dark Sky Ordinance/Preserve, so it has some of the darkest night skies in the world, and in fact, the darkest skies in the US. Big Bend National Park is the main attraction in the area. I encourage designers to google the term "big bend mountains", and "big bend national park". Being in west Texas, the vibe here is very relaxed, the friendliest people you'll ever meet, nature, peace and quiet, and adventure. The town of Terlingua is the "hub" of the southern area, and is a very unique mountain village.
I see a circular badge-like logo with a cowboy - with saturn for his head - stepping one foot over a mountain range with the night sky filling in the extra space. If you feel that nighttime isn't the answer for this logo, then feel free to submit something else. I have uploaded a couple of files, and feel like the "saturn image" is the one I want for the cowboy's head.
Feel free to add your ideas to the concept depicted too (cactus, guns, hats, dusters, spurs, etc). If you feel like going a completely different direction than my vision, and you know it's a better fit for the company, feel free to submit - I've been surprised before.
A competitor's website: http://bigbendfarflung.com/ - I like the circular logo they have, and would personally rate their logo a "6/10".
** logo should have phrases: "Space Cowboy" "Big Bend, TX" and "Get Lost in a Good Way"
I see a "vintage" feel too somehow to the design
Thanks for doing this everyone.
