0407, London Symphony Orchestra Identity, 2017

Its medium is

In four posters, tall white letters spell out the names of composers. A line of motion wipes across the letters, distorting their shape. Behind the letters is a spiky mass of lines and planes, rendered with 3D graphics software. The Partners in London created this graphic identity for the London Symphony Orchestra's 2017/18 season. The typography and illustrations are inspired by the bodily movements of the conductor and by parts and pieces of musical instruments.
