Thank you Black Forest Artists!

2022 Black Forest Festival Logo Contest

The Black Forest Festival is taking place on August 13, 2022. The theme for this year’s Festival is Strong Community Roots, and we are excited to recognize and honor the various organizations of the Black Forest that create strong roots within our community.

We placed an open call for local Black Forest Artists to submit a logo design for the Black Forest Festival that represents the theme Strong Community Roots. We received some fantastic designs, and it was a very tough decision for the Festival Team.

Without further ado…we would like to present the 2022 Black Forest Festival Logo.

The Inspiration...

This modern logo shows a graphical representation of Black Forest’s Ponderosa Pines, with Pikes Peak and the sun setting in the background.

The bottom half of the logo shows the deep, strong roots of the trees, reaching for each other, just as a community reaches out to each other.

Meet the Artist...

Kate lives in southwest Black Forest with her husband, three boys, dog, cats and chickens. Currently, she works full-time as a graphic designer for PSA Worldwide, while doing freelance brand strategy and design for small business owners on the side. She loves spending time in nature – from wandering through the forest in her backyard with her kids to hiking and fishing at the family cabin with her husband.

Thank you to all the Black Forest Artists for their designs!
