"An exciting refurb is underway at Albion Head Office thanks to @thedesignfrontier and their team at Albion."
To develop a new, modern brand guideline based on elements of the original, classic Albion Saddlemakers branding.
This included a clean, high end logo which reflected the change of name from Albion Saddlemakers to Albion England.
Ongoing work includes designing packaging, metal hardware for handbags and even textile design.
Albion Saddlemakers have been revered for their world class, handmade saddles and equestrian accessories for over 30 years. Their infamous ‘Revelation’ Saddles and ‘Original KB Pressure Bridle’ are synonymous with champions and riders at the peak of their sport.
Albion have earned their status as a designer brand and are now taking their experience from the paddocks, fields and Olympic Arenas to the high street, meaning they needed a boutique brand that aligned with a new, design conscious generation.

These elements can be used in isolation or paired together, using specific proportions. By doing so, the elements give flexibility when applying the brand to an extensive range of products and marketing collateral.
Positive and Reverse Usage
Careful consideration needs to be given to the scale and position of a brand.
This is particularly important when applied to products made from different materials and which perform different tasks.
Because of this, the simplicity of the Albion logo has enabled it to be reproduced across a wide range of materials including;
+ Ink on paper
+ Dye-sublimation on fabric and plastics
+ Foil Blocking
+ Debossing in paper and leather
+ Laser etching
+ Profile cut acrylic
+ Nickel and acrylic badges
+ Metal extrusion
This works well when applied to tissue for packaging or fabric lining inside handbags or wallets.
