I like the symbolism of the mark. Could be viewed as all nature, with a leaf surrounded by mountains, or has 2 hands holding nature (which I think is what you were going for) I like the concept alot.

Thank you. You are correct in your translation of the image. The hands come together to form an Aspen leaf, as well as protect a damaged tree, while forming the mountain range.

Great blend of symbolism. Well done.

I love the mark. Would find it more appealing and would have better balance overall if you could use a different typeface. Something sans serif would be best IMO.

Great icon. The hands representing mountains works very well. The type is a little heavy.

Nice icon for sure!!

I agree, the type looks so generic and takes away from the awesome symbolism.

I think this is one of the best logos I've seen on here in a long time! And there are a lot of awesome logos on here.*VERY well executed. I really like that you can see the mountains, the hands and the leaf all at the same time, it's not like people will see one or the other, or one is hidden or anything.*I think the typeface is a good choice, seems very professional and structured. I think if you went with a sans serif, or all lower case, it may look too 'hippy-ish' with the nature images.

Great icon - the aspen leaf immediately said %22Colorado%22 to me. The hands/mountain duality is brilliant.

Great mark Glen. I agree with Bart, I might try a bolder sans serif on this one with the angles and amount of dark area in the sky.

This is very good. Putting all those symbolisms into one logo - to end up with a %22simple%22 mark like that - very well done.

Nice work, a triple symbolism. A leaf, mountains, and hands, that's truly represent the foundation. Excellent job

this is really a great logo but I'm very curious. nobody has found other meanings?*in italy during the '70 there was a great female movement for the equal opportunities of the female and male sex, and the symbol that the women used was the two hands linked like this logo.**image from wikipedia, look at the right side:*http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/it/9/9d/Femministe_anni_70.jpg**the meaning is clear, the shape of the two hands internal remember the female sex.**anyway, after that, anyone who wants to allude to female sex, make this symbol with the hands.**this is not a critique, i love the logo, but when i make a logo or a normal symbol, I need to remember that in the world there are shapes used and abused for multiple and different symbolism.**don't you think?

gthobbs Apr. 27 '08

@ mainichi: Your points may very well be true and valid. However what you forget to mention is %22audience%22. The intended audience for this is a very specific region in the US where this symbolism holds no ground and bears no meaning whatsoever. Handshakes may be viewed as vulgar in some areas but it doesn't stop the practice or use in others as a form of communication. And if someone truly chooses to read the graphic as the female reproductive organ...I'll just say that correlation is intended to represent %22mother earth%22. Ok...that last one was a joke. But after 18 years of presenting to clients...I can justify any design on the fly.*Thank you, however, for bringing the cultural perspective on this.

mainichi Apr. 28 '08

gthobbs, yours are sacred words. all designers should find a way out in these occasions.*however I didn't want to criticize your logo for his wrong message, or that can be interpreted differently, but I just shared my opinion about the double or %22different by culture%22 meanings.**great work, thanks for not jumped on my words! :)

This is one of my all time fav's. I'm wowed by how you've fit so much dual symbolism into just one logo--shapes forming hands, leaves, mountains, hill...and all still maintaining a strong conservation theme. Amazing!
