What the hell's up with that wild new Kojima Productions logo?


Pioneer spirit

Hideo Kojima took former Metal Gear Solid artist Yoji Shinkawa with him to serve as the art director for Kojima Productions. The result? A Giger-looking logo much more in line with Shinkawa's style than the previous slick KojiPro fox. Kojima explains:

"I’ve always loved astronauts, and it is designed so it can be seen as a medieval knight or an astronaut’s helmet. The concept is, with new technology and a pioneer spirit, we want to bring you to a new realm -- within the digital world, I mean -- we want to travel together with you to a new realm to which no one has gone before.

"As for the skeleton, we’re homo sapiens -- people of wisdom -- but we’re also homo ludens -- people who play -- and the concept behind this logo is that: With new technology and a pioneer spirit, we’ll deliver play to a new world."

The Giger callback works in an even more roundabout way given that that explanation sounds like a roundabout way of describing the in-Alien-universe Prometheus. Kojima Productions will be selling the design on a shirt at some point.
