The International Classical Music Database

Galaxie Copernicus in use for the ICMD branding by Metagramme in St. Louis, USA.
The International Classical Music Database (ICMD) is a nonprofit organization located in Beijing, China. They exist to promote, educate, and archive classical music for people the world over. They approached Metagramme with a request for an identity that would be elegant, simple, and scholarly, yet contemporary to suit their focus on new media.
The aims of “elegant, simple, and scholarly” have been easliy met. I particularly like the subtle colour scheme. The sanserif is Gotham, by H&F-J.
