Death Records

Dr B and I watched Brian De Palma’s bonkers Phantom of the Paradise the other night, and one of the things that really caught my eye was this logo for the fictional Death Records label. It looks like something that was designed yesterday, not way back in 1974 (although the choice of type – Ortem – gives it away a little). The more I look at it, the more I love it. Definitely one to be filed under ‘all time classic logos designed for fictional clients’, alongside Ghostbusters and Weyland-Yutani Corp.
