Meaning and history Panic at the Disco Logo

Logo Panic at the Disco

For most of its history, the band had the signature exclamation point in its name, and it was also the visual centre of its emblem. In January 2008, Panic! at the Disco dropped the punctuation mark from its name and introduced an updated logo. Yet, as soon as in July 2009 the exclamation point was restored.

Emblem Panic at the Disco

Panic at the Disco Emblem

Unlike the simple, sleek logotypes that are so popular nowadays, the Panic at the Disco emblem is quite an intricate combination of geometric shapes. Let us start from the centre of the logo. Here, there is the signature of the band, the exclamation mark. The punctuation mark is not rounded; it is dominated by straight angles. Instead of the dot, there is a rectangular.

Around the exclamation mark, there is a circle shape. The circle overlaps with an equilateral triangle. The lines of the triangle are thinner than those of the circle.

On each corner of the triangle, there is a small circle. An emblem is placed inside each of the circles. The top one houses a stylized eye; the left one houses the sun, while the right one houses the moon.

Symbol Panic at the Disco

Each element of the Panic at the Disco logo has its own meaning reflecting the band’s core values and concepts that are important for them. On the whole, the logotype looks very eye-catching. This can be partly explained by the color scheme and the pronounced exclamation mark, which has always been the symbol of warning, the symbol of danger.
