The Logo

Typography & spacingEBU

Do’s

  • The logo may only be used in black or in white on a sufficiently dark background;

  • Always provide sufficient empty space around the logo;

Don’ts

  • Do not morph or distort the logo;

  • Do not make the logo too small;

  • Do not use the ‘Eurovision’ word mark without the ‘Song Contest’ component;

  • Do not create other words or additions to the ‘Eurovision’ word mark;

  • Do not add flags in the heart other than the official national flags of the participating countries.

Typography

The ‘Eurovision’ word mark is a custom-made font. No other characters other than those in the word ‘Eurovision’ are available.

The ‘Song Contest’ line is set in Gotham Bold, the line mentioning the Host City and event year is set in Gotham Book, both with a 30% character spacing. Both were designed by the American type designer Tobias Frere-Jones in 2000. A license can be purchased via Hoefler & Co.

The body type is set in Proxima Nova, designed by Mark Simonson in 2005. It was originally released in 1994 as Proxima Sans and amended for digital applications. A license can be purchased via Typekit.

Instead of Proxima Nova, Rubik may be used, which is freely available on Google Fonts. Instead of Gotham Bold, but only for headings in digital and print applications, Montserrat may be used, which is freely available on Google Fonts.

Theme artwork

Every year, the Host Broadcaster of the Eurovision Song Contest gets the opportunity to design complementary artwork to the official event logo, including a visual symbol, a theme slogan and other visual elements that strengthen the message of the event.

The slogan Open Up from 2020 will be re-used for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The new logo is inspired by the world map with Rotterdam as the beating heart of Europe in May 2021. “The logo connects Rotterdam with the capitals of the participating countries and symbolises coming together, regardless of the form,” says Sietse Bakker, the Executive Producer of the event.

Explanation of the 2021 logoCLEVER ° FRANKE

As in 2020, the logo and concept are developed by agency Clever ° Franke which generated the logo using software developed in-house. MediaMonks and NEP joined the design team and added a new system that makes the artwork usable on every platform and that can be seen everywhere, such as on TV shows, bus stops, merchandise and online.
