English artist Roger Dean has carved out a reputation for fantastical, colour-drenched landscapes, many of which adorn Yes album covers - along with the "bubble" logo he debuted on the band's 1972 LP 'Close To The Edge.'
Contrary to popular belief, this pop art-inspired logo has actually never appeared on an album by The Who. It was designed by Brian Pike in 1964 for a poster advertising the group's gig at London's Marquee club. It subsequently found its way onto thousands of badges, becoming a key element of mod iconography.
This ransom-note-style, Sex Pistols-inspired typeface appeared on both Libertines albums, 2002's 'Up The Bracket' and 2004's 'The Libertines'. Many obsessive Libs fans have been known to get the logo tattooed onto their skin.
Designed by drummer Patrick Wilson in 1993 during the mixing of Weezer's debut 'Blue Album', this 'W' symbol has become a long-running feature of Weezer's gigs, with fans replicating it with their hands as a sign of their fandom.
The Nine Inch Nails logo was designed in 1989 by Trent Reznor and Gary Talpas, who worked as art director on 'Pretty Hate Machine', 'Head Like A Hole', 'The Downward Spiral' and 'Further Down the Spiral'. The design was inspired by the sleeve of Talking Heads' 'Remain In Light' album.
Lead guitarist Ace Frehley came up with the logo, which first appeared on the band's second album, 'Hotter Than Hell.' Frehley's masterstroke was rendering the final two letters in Kiss as stylized lightning bolts.
