Dear Paste Magazine – Please Let Us Know When You’re Reimagined The Fatal Errection Logo

March 6th, 2013 at 3:53 pm by Gerard

Along with revising the storied logos for Thrill Jockey, 4AD, Merge and Audible Hiss Drag City, designer Ben Geier has taken a crack at Matador’s family crest (above).   Paste Magazine’s Laura Medina writes, “Anti, Sub Pop and Matador never looked so good.”  I’ll refrain from comment on Geier’s updates to Anti and Sub Pop, but where Matador is concerned, I still prefer Mark Ohe’s classic logo.

    It’s good to rip the character + warmth out of things!

  2. Kwan Says:

    This was clearly done by someone who likes your label. Why say something negative about it?

  3. Patrick Says:

    Um, because it sucks? I think the first commenter got it right.

  4. Gerard Says:

    I didn’t actually say anything negative about it. I merely pointed out that I preferred the original. The design shown above couldn’t have existed without Mark Ohe’s idea.

    saying something negative about anything is all that we have left, everything else got rebranded.
