The BR Symphonieorchester’s international acclaim reaches far, with yearly tour dates far-flung from its Munich base. As the only German orchestra to have had the honor of working with Leonard Bernstein and currently under the direction of Mariss Jansons the orchestra has a topnotch classical reputation to maintain. A long term client of Bureau Borsche since 2010, the BRSO’s signature black and white corporate design was inspired by its own stage presence: the monochrome suits of the orchestra. To delve deeper into the essence of the orchestra, we crafted a customized font that combines both serif and grotesque to visualize the harmony and disharmony of the orchestra’s notes. This bold yet minimal design expands across all aspects of the BRSO media from print, to merchandise, and digital.
