New logo: Konzerthaus Berlin


The Konzerthaus Berlin is a concert hall in Berlin. Originally opened in 1821 as a theatre, it was rebuilt for its current purposes in the 1980s. On Monday, May 7, the concert hall unveiled its programme for 2012/13 season, and also took the opportunity to introduce a new visual identity, created by MetaDesign. Billboards sporting the new look can be seen around Berlin.

The new logo is an evolution of the concert hall's previous logo, which featured a blurry spot, taken from a musical note. With the new look, the spot has been sharpened and includes the name of the hall written with two contrasting typefaces, one roman and one sans serif. The rest of the identity is described as "lively, approachable and surprising", employing a bright colour range.

Previous logo.

The blurry spot was introduced about ten years ago. The typography seems more recent.
