What We Do
It's the name of our family ranch in the Hill Country of Texas about an hour and a half west of San Antonio. We'll have the logo and slogan on t-shirts, hats, koozies, signs, etc.
No real preference, maybe some forest green and khaki, but we want it pretty simple so not a ton of flash or bright colors. It can be grey or black and white and we'll put it on a colored t-shirt, koozie, etc.
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
We want it pretty simple and my only ideas are something similar to the attached picture or incorporating some sort of Texas theme into the logo. The ranch is located in Camp Verde, TX (near San Antonio in the Hill Country of Texas near the Frio River) where the army was training to use camels a long time ago, so maybe incorporating a camel would be cool. We hunt white tail deer (ideas - antlers, bow and arrow, gun, etc.,) and fish at the river/small lake on the property. We refer to the ranch sometimes as CSR rather than Cypress Springs Ranch, not sure if that provides any ideas or not, but we do want it to say Cypress Springs Ranch.
I think we want the slogan "Fun With Responsibility" somewhere in the logo (it can be small), or at least an option of using the logo with and without that slogan - it's the slogan/inside joke for the rule of the ranch. It's a "Dad" thing to say - lets have fun, but we need to be safe and responsible aka Fun With Responsibility. It's also trademarked so we want the small TM integrated into the logo as well.
We're really open to whatever though, it doesn't have to be anything similar to the picture below, Texas, or anything else we mentioned just trying to give detail to help, we want it simple and we do want two options of with and without the slogan.
