Equine Marketing for Massage Business

Love seeing horses getting a little extra pampering! Photographing horses being massaged offers lot of opportunities for fun horsey expressions. Stephanie is working on promoting her business and I think these new flyers (still a work in progress) will help her out.  Her logo is a classic idea with a modern twist:

Equine Business Branding

One of my favorite things to do is to help horse professionals promote their business and services. Logo design, marketing materials including business cards, postcards and flyers. This is a design in progress that I am really liking! The B in EB Performance Horses is for the trainers adorable little girl so the playful B fits perfectly right now. One day when she is training side by side with her mom we can update that B to a stronger font. It’s the little things that make the difference!

Snowy Fairytale Equine Session

Jenn waited her entire life to have a horse of her own and Jimmy is the love of her life- second only to her husband (on most days!). This was a really fun session to plan and create and we lucked out with a warm winter afternoon. Photographed at Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI.

Horses Running in the Snow

There is something poetic about watching horses in a pasture. I especially like the way these geldings got in sync so quickly and stayed in sync as they raced playfully raced around the pasture. I am thinking of making notecards or holiday cards out of this session. What do you think?

Equine Marketing Design Process

Thought I would give you a glimpse into the design process. My client for this job is Kari Hoyer Farrier Service- she a the premier farrier in western WI and she does quite a bit of specialty shoeing and works with some pretty amazing horses (ok mine… LOL) but anyway here is how we got to where we are so far.

1) colors/ ideas/ things we like: feet, muted earthier jewel tones

running feet color-scheme-249-main

2) First ideas- horseshoe, fonts, close but not quite there…

Horse Rescue Fundraising Calendar

My “other home” is Lost Creek Ranch in Beldenville WI. Lost Creek Ranch is a 501(c)3 Horse Rescue that rehabs and retrains horses and gives them a forever home. Each year I design a calendar and here are a few favorite pages from the 2014 edition. You can see more and order your copy through me or Lost Creek Ranch:

“Tell me it can’t be done, and I will do it. Tell me the goal is too high, and I will reach it. Place an obstacle in front of me, and I will leap over it. Challenge me, dare me, or even defy me. But do not underestimate me. For on the back of my horse, anything is possible.”
