This booklet details the 1991 international programme of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. The orchestra had recently commissioned a new corporate identity from Rufus Leonard Design Consultants. The brief was to design a ‘mark’, a combination of a ‘symbol’ and ‘logotype’ (an image and a caption), to be printed on all the orchestra’s communication material. This booklet shows the chosen mark, based on a conductor with batons, or music dancing between outstretched arms. The colours were carefully selected by the designers, with a different colour scheme for each type of booklet.
