Meaning and history

Scorpions logo


During the first year after it was formed, the band was called “Nameless”, as they couldn’t find a proper name. The idea of ”The Scorpions” came to Rudolph Schenker, because of its strength and memorability.
The Scorpions logo is composed of a wordmark and an emblem above it. The emblem features a detailed image of a scorpion with sharp lines of its claws.
The wordmark in all-caps is executed in a custom font that is close to Lady Starlight, designed by Typodermic Fonts Studio. The unique smooth and bold lines of the typeface make the logo instantly recognizable.
