Ed.’s Notes: Bigger view of the logo below (or after the jump).
Provided quote: “Summit’s new look is an evolution of the brand’s past two logos, a brand expression that authentically reflects Summit’s unique craft. Duffy’s goal is to express the Summit name so that it punctuates the pictorial idea of an actual summit. This in-turn leverages the equity of the diamond shape that has been the hallmark of the Summit logo from the beginning. Summit Avenue, a vein running through the heart of St. Paul can be seen in the interpretation of a street sign which honors the local community and the heart of this hometown brand.”
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
