The Hyperion Stud logo is quite sentimental to us, as it is the foundation upon which our logo business began. EQ Graphics developed the website, brand identity and the marketing strategies for this start-up show jumping facility back in 2007, when they owned only two mares and no stallions. In our equine website design days, we did not offer logo design, yet all of our clients had a need for a high quality logo to represent their farms and equestrian businesses and we would always try to help them find the right artist to meet their needs.
The struggle and frustration we incurred when attempting to hire countless logo designers to help Hyperion create a ‘horse shield logo’ to exude a professional brand identity, was so discouraging, it led to our determination to learn how to draw a horse the way we could visualize them in our minds. Fast forward to today and Hyperion has grown into one of the leading Sporthorse Stallion operations in North America with over 30 stallions including their personal show string which have completed all the way to the Olympics… and well, we finally learned how to draw a horse.
