If you want to be on trend in Denmark, then leave your emeralds and rubies at home. This year it’s all about the diamonds! That’s right people. The Eurovision 2014 logo and artwork have been revealed and the diamond is the centrepiece of it all.
We’ve been listening to Rihana’s Diamonds ever since learning the news. As for Pernille Gaardbo, executive producer of this year’s ESC, she has spent the day dropping analogies. As she says: “The Eurovision diamond symbolises what the competition means to us: A hub that is at once sparkling and strong Diamond has lots of different sides and shows the diversity and the richness that will be on stage at the Eurovision Song Contest.”
But there’s more. Diamonds are found in the depths of dirty old mines. Apparently B&W Arena is just as gross. “[The diamond] emphasises visually the approach we have for the contest in 2014: The rawness of the B&W Arena combined with the sparkling show, and in the middle of the stage, the diamond as a unifying force, right where it’s all done.”
You can see all of the art work below. We love that they have mocked up a coffee cup!
