Below is our current logo. We are currently in the process of rolling out a number of new programs over the next year. We are looking for a powerful design which incorporates more "punch" and really speaks to our passion for Colorado's outdoors and medicine. We want something exciting, cool and unique to our program.
Our programs and educational focus is in the outdoors. Being in Colorado we want our logo to reflect this. We would like the incorporation of images which evoke this.
We also need our logo to convey the message we are affiliated with a medical school and part of the medical community. For medicine the common symbols are a red cross (or crescent, etc.) and the Rod of Asclepius (snake coiled around a rod)
A number of other wilderness medicine programs have used an ice axe as the Rod of Asclepius with a snake coiled around that. We like this idea but has become cliche within the industry.
As stated above, we want a cool, unique, powerful logo which speaks to our passion of the outdoors but still has a piece of traditional medicine as well.
