Thanks for this input! The logo on the cover art you linked is the “old style” one. I agree with you that there are different ways to “read” the old style logo (consisting of the logo of Deutsche Grammophon together with the text “Resonance” in a common square box):
- The full square is interpreted as a proper logo on its own. This would give my suggested solution, namely to use the Label Deutsche Grammophon Resonance.
- You interpret it as two separate logos “Deutsche Grammophon” and “Resonance”. This is the variant you are suggesting.
- You interpret it as the logo “Deutsche Grammophon” together with a series name “Resonance”. This variant is the one which is currently implemented in the annotations I’ve set up.
For me, all three interpretations would be fine.
The most important thing is that we come to an agreement which can then be used to unify the current wealth of variants.
Personally, I’m leaning towards variant 1, for the following reason:
There are these similarly constructed logos with “Musikfest”, “Privilege”, “Favorit”, “Junior”, “Literator” (in the place of “Resonance”) around. I think a uniform treatment of all these logos is highly desirable. Currently, for each of these logos, there is an associated label: Deutsche Grammophon Musikfest, Deutsche Grammophon Privilege, Deutsche Grammophon Favorit, Deutsche Grammophon Junior, Deutsche Grammophon Literatur. So the interpretation of the full square box as a proper label on its own minimizes the changes to be done.
It would be great to hear more opinions on whether we should go with 1, 2 or 3 (or something else)!
