One Timely Example

Sometimes the visual concept for a logo seems effortless, but you must have a designer’s eye to bring it to life. The design of the Geneva Music Festival logo is almost entirely typographic aside from the combination of the “G clef” and the letter “G” from Geneva. The challenge was preserving the character of both the music symbol of the G-Clef and the letterform of a capital G. Technically, the G clef is already a stylized G, but most people don’t realize that. Putting a G clef in front of the letters MF to form “GMF” would not get the message across as quickly as it does with the stylized combination of the music symbol and the letterform. Pictured is the complete logo, designed in 2016 by InHouse Design.
