The Lahti Symphony Orchestra’s 20th International Sibelius Festival was held at the Sibelius Hall in Lahti, Finland from 5–8 September 2019. The thematic concepts for this jubilee festival was songs and stories, and the festival’s artistic director was Dima Slobodeniouk, principal conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra.
Case & Solution The brief was to make a distinctive visual look to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Sibelius Festival. At the center of all was a large illustrated letter S that told visually the same story as the festival program content. As Jean Sibelius said, “Music begins where the possibilities of the language end.”
