The Gstaad Menuhin Festival updates its image
You most likely have already noticed it: now that the anniversary edition of the 2016 Festival has closed its doors, the Gstaad Menuhin Festival has decided to move forward in a new guise. The foundation remains the same: “nature.music.you”. But their graphic depiction has evolved: the silhouette of the mountains in Saanenland can also be perceived as a link to sound waves, the logo itself evokes a musical stave, and one color dominates and will be transformed to adapt to the new musical theme of each year.
