The current visual identity was developed by the Californian agency Brandiose (San Diego). While the animal featured on the Arkansas Travelers logo may look like an ordinary horse at first glance, don’t be deceived. According to the press release, the creature is “chiseled” from the same material that is used for the exterior of Arkansas State Capitol Building, the white limestone. In this way, the designers wanted to emphasise the link with the team’s home state and remind of the fact that the Travs have been Arkansas’s team for over a century. There’s a large red “A” on the forefront and the franchise’s full name in a similar font.

White is not just an additional color here – it’s used as the symbol of the Capitol. The two shades of red (bright red and maroon) help to add an extra dimension. The palette also includes black and grey.
