    Default Who Designed The Van Halen Logo?

    I remember reading somewhere that one of the members, maybe even Mark Stone, came up with the logo but I could be wrong. Anyone know?

    Not the winged VH logo. Mark Stone didn't do that one. They had one created after VH 1 was recorded as Warner Bros. didn't like the original one the band was using.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    I'm sure there's still a few textbooks and binders from high school , with my VH logos drawn on them ...

    There's probably one kid in every school that has a clue. The teachers- some of them anyway, know.

    Back in college I had a manufacturing class where we had to demonstrate the ability to program a CNC mill. I made a small key-chain sized VH logo and was momentarily hailed as a visionary. It inspired one of my friends to make, during the sand casing portion of the class, an aluminum VH paperweight. Admittedly his was the more kick ass of the two even though it was based on the Sammy era logo.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    At 47, I still draw it on fogged up windows and beaches. There is something wrong with me, but then again, I wouldn't be on the links if there wasn't.

    I still do the same. I even have it drawn on the back of my company truck.
