Well, it seems as if we have a logo for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015! ORF officially revealed the artwork today and seriously, it is some swanky stuff!
We already knew earlier in the year what the slogan of this year’s Contest would be – Building Bridges, and it’s fair to say that a lot of us would have expecting an actual bridge to form the individual logo of the upcoming Contest. However, the EBU and host broadcaster ORF designed a spherical logo with an illuminated wave of bubbles. EBU Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand said of the design:
It is a great logo, a strong sign with recognition value and endless possibilities.
The design itself looks incredibly 2011-esque, in terms of the wave that features in the background of the logo, but it also shows the main message the slogan of the Contest carries – even though the spherical shapes and the wave are two completely different things, they are co-existing peacefully and this is how the logo is incorporated into the slogan of ‘Building Bridges’ – how we build friendships and such with other countries and people and we all just live in harmony…and if this actually isn’t the concept that the EBU are speaking of, then it shall be my own personal opinion….speaking of, what’s your opinion of this year’s logo?
Kevin Ledru from France: I like the logo but there is something missing to me i don’t know what but never mind I like it!
Elspeth Taylor from the United Kingdom: Nothing wrong with it. I’m not really interested in Logos and slogans. For me, it’s all about the music. To me, these things are just distractions.
Anthony Ko from Slovenia: It’s more like a combination of ESC 2010 & 2011 + JESC 2010 mixed together.
Tobias Rörvall from Sweden: I like it. Not very original, I guess, but everyone complains every year no matter what they do.
Well it seems that it’s a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to the logo for this year’s Contest – I suppose everything will always split people’s opinions… So what do you think about it? Are you a fan of this year’s logo or are you leaned towards a previous logo? If so, which logo was your favourite? Feel free to tell us what you think by commenting below!
