In celebration of 'Minutes to Midnight' turning 14, Frank Maddocks posted on Instagram, "May 14, 2007 - Linkin Park Minutes to Midnight Icon design. The band asked me develop a logo that was iconic, memorable and easy to render. A simplistic almost punk approach. Broken down to basic elements. A bit of the exploration and development shown here."

 

He included a lengthy series of logos that he went through in presumably late 2006 or early 2007 before he reached the final, signature "circle LP logo" that we all know.

 

In related news, Linkin Park has uploaded the 40 minute "Making of MTM" DVD on YouTube for the first time. Still no word on the infamous "Webster Hall" footage that was shown in theaters of the band making the album, though!

Question to people who have the MTM MVI -  is your making of MTM video also has an ad that is at 38:30 - 38:45? Because I have original EU edition and I don't have that ad, the whole making of MTM on my MVI has a length 39:42.

iconic logo, and i loved how it was altered each album. Love the ATS one, and love the stripped back OML one.

 

In fact i think OML had some of the best font design in an LP album. Just gorgeous.
