One of the oldest orchestra’s in France, is undergoing a bit of a revolution. The signing of a new musical director Paavo Jarvi and a move to a new architecturally radical home Philharmonie de Paris the orchestra was keen to make this years season brochure tie in with its new inspirational image.
Of course, with a rebrand being a little way off they wanted to stick within their current brand guidelines but push them much further.

This allowed us to apply it in a fresh freeform manner that retains both their heritage and legacy.
