We are emerging resort destination in South Dakota's Black Hills. We are looking for a strong, recognizable logo to be used to brand the full destination experience and which can be adapted to endorse the various retail, entertainment, and hospitality brands within our portfolio and on our site.

HI Designers! Thank you all for your submissions so far. We want to clarify a few points that perhaps didn't make it into our brief. We are looking to distinguish ourselves from both a quality perspective and tourism perspective in our region, and in doing so, would not like to see references to any of the following in designs:

Indian heritage, Indian reservations
Campgrounds, tents, camping tools or icons
Mount Rushmore or other destinations in the state
Arrows, bows
Mining tools

Please see our creative brief for history and overview of our location and offerings.

Thank you!

Thank you to all those participating in our project! We are excited about the designs coming through, however, wanted to emphasize a few other design notes:

1 - Addie and Camp should be of equal weighting in design and sizing
2 - We are not opposed to illustrations or photography which bring in the concept of an old mining town in South Dakota
3 - We are not interested in seeing people in our final logo/mark

Thank you again for your considerations!

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has not chosen a winner so we're going to close the project. Please know that we've made repeated attempts to contact them by phone and email but were unable to reach them.

To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The cS crew
