How Mountainfilm started their logo design journey

Summary

Please stay away from literal translations of our name as the festival is much more than mountains and film. The winning logo needs to be unique to Mountainfilm and stand alone as a symbol of the festival. Use of film, reels, cameras, etc. can be used to describe any festival and without the name Mountainfilm will not be associated with our festival alone. Please think outside of the name to design an iconic logo that is scalable, describable and unique.

Company name

Mountainfilm in Telluride

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Mountainfilm in Telluride is one of the longest running adventure & environmental film festivals.  Our mission is to educate and inspire audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining. 

We began as a climbing festival in 1979 but have grown to encompass so many aspects of the world with Mountain Culture as our core.

We are now embarking on a new adventure of our own as we expand our presence int he world through a touring film festival, a DVD, web video, and multiple other forms of communicating with the world.  Because of this we want to develop a unified logo design that will be recognizable, scalable and describable. 

We need a visual representation of our brand that can easily translate to all of the various mediums we plan to engage (listed above). I would encourage you to visit our web site for more detailed information about our organization and what we stand for. I am also available to further elaborate or provide past logos that don't work.
