The Creation of Komitas Quartet’s Logo


09 Jul The Creation of Komitas Quartet’s Logo


The management team of Komitas Quartet requested Sevada to draw a logo for the musical ensemble. Being the world’s oldest-established performing string quartet, which proudly carries the name of the great Armenian composer Komitas, was what made the artist to take on the high responsibility to create the logo.

Sevada’s aim was to illustrate a symbolic connection of Quartet’s music to its roots in the Armenian culture. Thus, he went on to draw an ambiguous image that looked at the same time as the contours of a violin and a cello, and the initial letters of Komitas Quartet in Armenian (K –Կ and Q Ք). Based on his drawings, graphic designer Hamik Mayilyan finalized the logo.
