Heartland

Posted by Scott On April - 27 - 2018

The May/Jun 2018 issue of Horse Canada features a “celebrity cover” with Amber Marshall of TV Show Heartland fame.

Art Director Sieu Truong has created a compelling and energetic cover, with a straight-ahead approach.  Good use of the important cover real estate and color to direct the reader’s eyes down the page.  Including the skybar, this cover packs in 9 different hooks to lure a newsstand sale and communicate value for money.

This issue goes on sale April 30th.  Based on past experience with Amber as a cover girl (Horse Canada has featured her on two previous covers) this one will be a winner too!
