Rockstar Games Logo 1994

The original incarnation of Rockstar was BMG Interactive, a developer that existed from 1994 to 1998. The centerpiece of their logo was an acronym ‘BMG’, written in wide, short serif letters. Below it, and separated by a horizontal line, was the word ‘Interactive’ in smaller sans-serif letters with taller proportions.

The whole logo was black, except for a burgundy triangle that pointed down into the central depression of the letter ‘M’. It basically mirrored the curvature of the character.

The logo is composed of a yellow square that features rounded angles and a thin black outline. Inside the square, a bold letter “R” is placed, with a white five-pointed star in a black outline, placed on the end of the “R” bar.
