A new organ is being built in Wit­ten, and it will be one of the biggest in the Ruhr region. In order to make this pub­lic a cam­paign was launched, and Cape Arcona was be com­mis­sioned to do the cor­po­rate design includ­ing the logo and the cor­po­rate type­face. We cre­ated a serif text-font with a low con­trast and lit­tle cut-outs to take it away from a too his­toric look. It keeps the bal­ance between mod­ernism and tra­di­tion, between a func­tional look and stun­ning details.The Marienorgel logo won the WOLDA 08 Award.
