For its 51st edition, the festival proposed a total change of image that linked the spirit of the festival with the strength and rhythm of the music. Druk was the perfect choice to reflect the unpredictable and lively nature of jazz thanks to its expressiveness and multiple formats. The use of black and white and the strong prominence of typography form the anchor of the new visual system that will define this and the following editions.
Swiss 721 works as a support font for longer texts and additional information.
The fonts in use are Druk Wide, Druk Condensed, and Swiss 721, which have been mixed in words. I assume that the blackletter for “Voll-Damm” is custom lettering, but this hasn’t been confirmed by the designer.
