I’m pleased to announce we have selected a logo for the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill. It was one of the earlier submissions, but it just kept rising to the top of the pile when reviewing prospects.
If you didn’t hear about it, we held a crowd-sourcing logo design contest to come up with a new look for the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill. We used a website called CrowdSpring. There were 39 total logo submissions 16 different artists and designers.
The final decision really came down to 2 designs — one was more formal and elegant while the other was fun with a sense of humor. Although the more elegant version would have made a better logo for our menu, we think the hand shooting out of the water with a paddle gripped tight works better for our type of bar and grill. After all, we’re an adventure resort.
We’re already making plans for T-shirts and hats, so if you would like to be first on the list to purchase one of these awesome shirts, get yourself down to ACE this year. We think it’s going to be a great collector’s item!
The Lost Paddle is one of many dining options at ACE. And if you’ve never been rafting with us, you should know about our hot-grilled, riverside lunch included on every trip.
