The logo and its meaning

Tiesto logo
In 2004 Tiesto introduced a logo which was shown in his second album, “Just Be”. It depicts a songbird, a swallow in a circle. Under the emblem, there is the wordmark “Tiesto” made in an elegant thin font. The logo is noted for having effectively used the image space and displaying the contrast between the thickness of the bird and the thinness of the circle and recognizable shape. The bird silhouette symbolizes the positive energy of music by Tiesto and the genre in general.

The logo is being used since then and by now there have been developed several versions. Most common is the black circle and the bird’s silhouette on a white background.  Another one is the white bird on a black background. Another version depicts a raspberry red bird on a black square with a white studio light beam across the background.  There is also a version of the logo against a black background made in a combination of two tinctures of blue colour: a light arctic blue and a saturated cobalt blue, which gives the logo a 3D flavour.
