Make it dark and sinister, and preferably with an umlaut.

I enjoyed this brief but highly entertaining interview with Christophe Szpajdel, a Belgian man who has designed over 7000 logos, mostly for death metal bands.

Best line: "But a lot of extreme metal bands deal with the destruction of mankind, which I think is needed. Maybe not a complete destruction, but at least a drastic cull."

However, he is not the mastermind behind the scariest logo of all time:

Ah yes, Martin's Supermarkets of Nothern Indiana. Count On Us.....FOR BLOOD-SOAKED DEATH AND DESTRUCTION!

haha! honestly, i always thought Martin's was like in permanent Halloween mode or something. And when it was Halloween, they seemed so appropriate.
