Winteravonden aan de Amstel

Winteravonden aan de Amstel (literally «Winter Evenings at the Amstel»), is a winter, Russian, chamber music festival that happens yearly in Amsterdam.

The Hermitage Museum is one of its main partners, and they invite fine Russian musicians to play a Russian-composed repertoire.

The identity relays largely on the decorative features of the display typeface DK Hofstad by David Kerkhoff (based on the posters designed by Dutch graphic artist Jan Lavies for the Holland-America Line cruise ships), and uses plain colour combinations from a Russian historical colour-palette. The logo behaves displays both vertical and horizontal, positive and negative versions, and behaves as a stamp on posters that can be placed on top of both plain colour or photographic backgrounds.
