The Carbondale Community Chamber of Commerce unveiled a new tourism logo at its trustee meeting on Tuesday, April 26. Designed by local firm Rainy Day Designs, the new logo is the result of the recently formed Carbondale Lodging and Tax Committee, which works to generate promotion, development and marketing of tourism in Carbondale.”The new logo is the first step in establishing Carbondale as a viable destination for visitors in an increasingly competitive marketplace,” said Randi Lowenthal, executive director of the Carbondale chamber.The logo will be used consistently with all marketing, advertising and public relations efforts in Carbondale, as well as by the chamber and on the Carbondale website –”Our goal was to build an icon that symbolizes our rivers, arts, mountains and trails, blacksmithing and ranching heritage, and most essentially the character of our community,” said Erin Rigney from Rainy Day Designs.In September 2004, National Geographic Adventure Magazine highlighted Carbondale as “The Ultimate Rocky Mountain Hideout.”
