Hopefully this is a fun project. I sell homes in Park City Utah, which is a resort town that caters to people who enjoy an active lifestyle in the mountains. I want the logo to be clean & iconic and portray strength. An obvious direction may be to try some logos using the initials USH (Ultimate Ski House). If there's a way you can design those initials to make a house that could be cool. I know the name of the company is ultimate ski house, but don't get caught up on trying to incorporate a skier in the logo. Try it if it works, but I don't want to see skiers in all my logos. Besides, there's lots to do in Park City... Hot Air Ballooning, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Skiing, Snowboarding... I would hope my clients would think, "This real estate agent is the perfect person to find my ideal home so I can live my dream life." For many people that home is a vacation home, for others it will be their full time residence. Park City is an awesome community, in fact Outside Magazine rated it the best small town in america. Like I mentioned earlier it's their dream home for their perfect life. .
BTW I was (and still am occasionally) a copywriter in LA, so I've been down this road before. Logos aren't easy, have fun with it, experiment, and try to keep it simple and iconic.
Please note: As far as colors go, my real estate brokerage uses red, so that's why I picked it as my primary color. Feel free to use black & white too. Gray is an option as well if it works.
Thank you. Good luck.
