Known for their beauty and athleticism, the Arabian horse is so distinctive that most horsemen can easily pick one out from a herd. Morning View Arabians is a high-end breeder and seller of this distinguished breed, located in the extraordinarily beautiful Flathead Valley, Montana.
When tasked with creating a brand for Morning View Arabians, GTTS understood the importance that research and visual study would play in portraying the breed with accuracy and respect. We began by studying videos and photographs of Arabian horses; their shapes, movements, and breed characteristics, such as ear shape, forehead, nostril and muzzle size, and feature spacing.
Next, we worked to find a graphical balance between paying homage to the Arabian cultural heritage, without overshadowing the majesty of the horse itself. Lastly, we performed color studies to determine a color palette that spoke towards the royal nature of the breed, including adding a gold leaf metallic highlight to provide an optical and tactile feature to printed material.
After our branding work was complete, we rounded out Morning View Arabians marketing collateral with professional photography, business cards, envelopes and custom invitations.
