Logo #153: Xymox

Designed by Vaughan Oliver in 1989. Xymox founder Ronny Moorings: "Vaughan designed the logo for us when Xymox was signed to the now defunct label Wing-PolyGram. Since then the logo has always been used, also after the re-naming of the band Clan Of Xymox. The logo is used as a backdrop when the band plays live."

It's a lovely and comforting circle, in which the letters act as an endless loop of identity and confidence - a concept that reminds one of the wise words of President Calvin Coolidge: "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
