Redhorse designs and manufactures high performance, race-tested engine fittings. I refined their logo, developed a more robust brand identity system and collaborated on design concepts for their expanding product range.

Overview

The Redhorse logo appears on products, packaging, advertising, merchandise and signage. The original design was familiar to customers but was difficult to use in many of these applications. The new logo is more flexible and legible but retains the most distinctive features of the original.

Symbol

The new Redhorse symbol was redrawn using custom-designed letters. The distinctive cut-out on the left side of the ‘R’ has been retained and is mirrored on the crossbar of the ‘H’. The letters lean to the right to suggest movement and overlap slightly so that they can be combined into a single graphic.

The new symbol has a more distinctive silhouette which can be more easily printed, embossed or etched onto parts.

Wordmark

The original wordmark was based on a blocky display font. The letters were broad and tightly spaced- which made them difficult to read at small sizes. The updated wordmark is based on a more legible font which shares the square character of the original logo. The letters were adjusted to match the angle of the RH symbol.

Logo System

The logo and wordmark can be used in a number of different configurations. This creates a system which is flexible enough to use across a wide range of applications and materials.

Text

The new font family includes narrow, regular and wide width letters and each set is available in range of weights- from light to extra bold. The new font opens up design possibilities and creates a consistent look and feel across different types of collateral.

Color

The original colour palette of black, red and white has been retained. This color scheme is familiar to customers and complements Redhorse products- which are offered in red, black, blue or clear finishes.
