New festival logo

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Reykjavík Jazz we decided to design a new logo for the festival. Throughout the years there have been various designs and most recently the grand piano hand was the symbol for the festival. The new logo was designed by calligraphy artist and graphic designer Soffía Árnadóttir. The new logo also replaces the two versions of the old one by omitting the word ‘festival’ from the title in English and the word ‘hátíð’ in Icelandic. The result is ‘Reykjavík Jazz’ which sounds very nice.
