Anatomy of a Logo: Moebius' Airtight Garage, Part 1

On August 4, 1992, Epics Comics editor Marie Javins called to see if I was available to work on a Moebius logo. I said, "Yes." She said Jean-Marc Lofficier asked for me. Minutes later, my fax machine churned out Moebius artwork selected for the covers of the four-issue mini-series. The next day I started work on the logo.

Thinking of automobile chrome logos.

Pseudo-psychedelic lettering.

A few letters with hints of the Art Deco style.

On August 7, these six designs were faxed to Marie.
