We had the pleasure of creating a beautiful logo for Bugle Hill Farm.
The client came into the project with a handful of ideas including incorporating acorns and, rightfully so, a bugle.
A bugle is most recognizable from the side, but bringing in a bit of perspective can make it very interesting. And, then there’s another thought. What kind of bugle is it? After a bit of research, we found two prominent bugles used at horse races. There’s the long, skinny one with really no valves at all. Then, there’s the intricate, valved bugle. The key to a good logo is to simplify, simplify, simplify. Narrowing down the right bugle was a process.
With the acorns, we just love the wood engraving look-very charming for a couple of nature-found items. The most difficult part about creating these acorns was staying true to the light source.
After the client decided acorns weren’t exactly ‘singing’ to him, we stuck with the bugle. Using it in a couple of ways. One, with simple type and image. The other, with incorporating the actual bugle within the letter ‘B’. This approach was the winner in the end.
We think it turned out great. The mark can be used on its own, or with the type underneath it. A strong brand, indeed. The client was extremely pleased, which makes another job well done.
