Redtail Mountain is a breathtaking private golf and equestrian facility in the mountains of northeast Tennessee. Much to her surprise, the owner of Friesians of Redtail Mountain was presented with a gift certificate for a custom EQ Graphics logo as a Christmas present from her family. For this Tennessee mountain river logo, we were asked to combine an upright Friesian wearing a double-bridle with a subtle nod to the majestic mountains and the tranquil river that make this property so special.
Our years of experience as stallion owners, competitors, and marketers in the equine industry allow us to recognize the subtle differences in breeds such as Friesians. We understand why some make the cut for Ster and others are 2nd Premie… and we can recognize the rare few who become Approved. Every breed and every discipline are so unique and so completely different, and we strive to portray the best of each breed in our logos.

Brainstorming for Original Mountain River Logo Designs
Before delving into the different potential ideas and art that could be used in this mountain river logo, we always discuss the client’s business vision. To do this, we need to ponder upon the client’s requirements, such as including all the details that make Redtail Mountain unique. The client wanted us to weave in the mountains and river that the Friesian horses are surrounded by. Drawing ideas and inspiration from the discipline that the business specializes in was crucial for us to successfully showcase the brand with the utmost specific detail.
The Process of Creating A Logo Design
For the mountain river logo, we wanted an elegant and simple finish that effortlessly tells a story about who Redtail Mountain is and what they specialize in. To do that, we chose line art to draw the mountains and rivers that they’re most known for. There wasn’t much challenge in incorporating the mountains into the logo. However, we wanted to integrate the river seamlessly. To achieve that, we chose to weave the river’s outline with both the mountains and the typography. The Friesian horse silhouette wearing a double-bridle showcases the discipline the equestrian business specializes in; Dressage.
Cursive Typography for Storytelling
Weaving the river with the cursive typography of the word “Friesian” gave more of a simplistic finish than if we were to separate the river and use another line for the letter “F.”
By combining the mountain, river, and the word “Friesian” together with a simple and curved line, we achieved a more minimalistic look. For the typography, two different fonts were used; cursive and simple. This added a bit more element and detail to this mountain river logo.
