Harrison & Co has designed the cover art for a series of Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment albums on its newly launched label OAE Released. The first album, Monteverdi Vespers, is released on 31 January. Consultancy creative director Chris Harrison says, ’The artwork for the range of CDs is based on using and illustrating a single letter for each CD. Over time the collection will build into an alphabet.’
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
