    OK, I'm surprised I don't know this, but who designed the VH logo?

    And additionally, who re-designed it when it became the swirl VH logo?

    I have all the albums, but I can't seem to find where the credit for the design of the logo is..Maybe I'm just blind here..


    Glenn? You wanna take this one?...I know you MUST know this.

    Thanks

    For some reason I remember it as being Alex that created the original logo. But others have credited Dave with its creation. I really don't know for sure, and I don't know who was responsible for adding the circles in the Sammy era.

    I asked this question months ago but never got an answer. I'm wonderin' if it was just Warner's in house art department of which it might be hard to find out the exact individual. A very good question seein' as how the VH logo is a recognizable rock 'n roll symbol as the Rolling Stones "tongue & lips" logo.

    Thanks Glenn...I wish we knew for certain who designed it, but at least you have an idea...I was just wondering, cause in my humble opinion it is THE COOLEST rock and roll log EVER...

    (Of course, I am a bit biased here....)

    If anyone out there knows for certain who designed it...Sherman?...I'd appreciate it. Just curious is all...

    Since you asked yesterday I emailed Brad at the Official site and asked him who designed the logo and who redesigned it with the circles. I'll let you know if he emails back and what his answer is.

    Well, Brad just emailed me and he doesn't know who designed the VH logo. Oh well, it's back to guessing.

    This question seems to be one of the wonders' of the world. Unless someone speaks to one of the original members personally, I don't think we'll ever find out. My guess still would be Dave. In addition to being a great rock 'n roll frontman, he is also an artist. Check these out...

    Ira Feinburg eh! cool! dankatenik - Where did you find this elusive bit of Van Halen info. I'm into these things, I like to find out somethin' 'bout the guy.

    Really? I never heard of that guy before!

    Thanks dankatenik. Now I can sleep at night no longer wondering....LOL


    BTW the Stones logo is definitely one of the coolest rock and roll logos! Though I give the nod to the VH logo as being the best ever!

    The awesome thing about the Stones logo is that it doesn't say their name anywhere on it, not even initials like the VH logo. But yet people see those lips and they instantly know it's the Stones.
