Pursuing a casino in the prairie
RPM Advertising specialized in designing for the gaming community. So, when Trailhead Casinos began their bid for a gaming license in the state of Kansas, they came to us. The challenge was to create an identity for this new venture, brand it’s various on-property venues/amenities, and create goodwill in the hearts and minds of a very conservative population.
Taking inspiration from the things that make Kansas famous, I created a logo combining wheat, Prairie-Style architecture, and the black diamond on ski trails (harkening back to the original name for the casino). Once this direction had been chosen, I carried it through billboards, ads, advertorial newspaper supplements, and direct mail.
Below you’ll find the teaser billboard, logos for the casino and it’s various restaurants and bars, advertorial layouts, postcard, and magazine ad.
