Antiqua is an annual classical music festival. Every year we realize a different identity, which can always tell new aspects of classical music. The visual identity of the 2022 edition of Antiqua is developed around the dancing gestures of the musicians’ hands. The hands, synthesized in the form of icons, acquire a mimic function revealing the instruments without declaring them. The icons have been integrated in the texts to become a part of the visual system. A modular system made of three colours boxes, allows to create different layouts in an easy way.
