The logo needs to contain the acronym (DECO) and the full name (Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra). But it should have the flexibility for the last two words - and letters of the acronym - to change, as it will also be used by DESQ (Darwin Ensemble String Quartet).
These logos may be used side-by-side and so the last two letters/words (eg CO and Chamber Orchestra) should be slightly differentiated from the first two (DE and Darwin Ensemble) perhaps by being in a slightly different shade of colour.
Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra
In addition to the text described above we need two graphical motifs to be incorporated:
- something musical (a violin, musical stave/lines, notes).
- the three spires of Lichfield Cathedral which is where the orchestra is based (see here).The logo should have an adaptable colour scheme to be able to work over dark and light backgrounds.
It should fit in with the evolution logo on darwinensemble.com, as they will appear next to each other. We would like it to work with the colour scheme on the website, but will be flexible to change if a better alternative if suggested.
- Smart, modern design
- Simple, iconic graphics
- Treble clefs
- Use of photos, or cutouts.
