Describe the brief from the client
Relaunch the brand appearance of the Orchestre Symphonique Genevois. Make tradition attractive and accessible without losing it.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to create a brand identity for the Orchestre Symphonique Genevois (OSG) that combines the old world – elegance of classical music – with modern forms of communication and interactivity.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
A brand identity for an orchestra deserves an identity that creates sound itself. So we developed a typeface and a logotype with note heads replacing parts of characters and combined it with a 5-line stave. The melody, resulting from the logotype, generates the sound logo and text elements on the OSG website were converted into music. An app allowed people to receive sound messages from the OSG and the short sound message (SSM) made the creation of sound – derived from text messages – possible.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The new brand identity met the objective to be highly appreciated amongst visitors, media and even the musicians. And most importantly, it attracted the future target group of the orchestra.
