‘Monkey Mountain’ is a large, self-contained facility that will offer families in Summit County, UT and surrounding areas a high quality, big fun, indoor recreation center. Occupying over 4,000 sq. feet, it is designed to hold giant, soft, contained play structures; slides; imagination-inspiring play areas; an activity/learning room; a birthday party room; and a front drop-off/sign-in area.
There will be two distinct areas of play – one for younger children aged 1 to 4; and the other for children 5 to 12. All of Monkey Mountain’s equipment is safety-tested, proven and approved for quality play. Employees will be thoroughly trained in child safety and CPR, as well as be required to learn and employ our theory of ‘Adventures in Learning,’ i.e., educationally-driven activities children will experience within our establishment that maximize fun while enriching learning.
The separate enrichment rooms, with instructors, will provide an array of age-specific structured activities including art, music, dance, dramatic play and more in pre-scheduled one & two-hour blocks throughout the day. This will provide parents and children the potential for a much needed and desired melding of play and learning, with the learning skewed towards the arts, something sadly reduced or missing in our public education system.
The primary target is Adults 25-49, but understand that parents, guardians, aunts & uncles will also find great enjoyment within Monkey Mountain’s confines, with a spacious, scenic seating area where they can watch their children play and learn, while enjoying free WiFi.
We need a fresh new logo that represents our large, ambitious, indoor play space here in Park City. We'd love it to incorporate a monkey(s) but me mindful of how you incorporate, as we've thus far failed in funding a way to have a representative monkey character in the logo and still make it clean, readable and fun, so...
1. Stay away from well-known representations of monkeys like Curious George or Paul Frank logo.
2. Nothing too elegant or sophisticated - we want to be approachable and accessible, i.e., so locals and tourists want to come by a few times a week.
3. Typeface should be clear, simple, and bold - stands out. We like the type face for the old 'The Flintstones' cartoon and a company called 'Playtime' that's making our soft-play structures (out of Denver).
Feel free to experiment with colors, etc., but please keep us distant from the existing 'Rain Forest Cafe' type/colors.
Please no stock images or clip art in the logo.
I've attached a sheet of logos from our previous designer that was approaching what we needed but in the end failed to successfully communicate what we wanted. Take it for what it's worth! I also attached a rough, hand drawn attempt by the owner/investor while on a plane, which is very rough! Thanks all!!
