West Bund Art & Design adopts a new visual identification system

In 2019, West Bund Art & Design adopts a new visual identification system, designed by renowned Dutch design studio thonik. The new logotype, in particular, comprising “westbund” in lowercase, differentiates itself from static, traditional logos with distinct letterforms that illustrate dynamism and motion.
