Artists First

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


On May 18, 2018, following Paul Young's exit from Principato-Young Entertainment nine months earlier and Electus taking a majority stake, the former company rebranded to Artists First.

Logo (June 21, 2018-)

Visuals: On a black background with a light blue glow, a white line is seen drawing to a large angular stylized "AF" in white, which slightly rotates towards the right as a blue lens flare-esque thing moves off the screen diagonally, making the letters turn green as they shimmer, while the company name in green wipes in below.


  • Sometimes, the logo is either still or shortened.
  • A brighter version exists.
  • Like the previous logo, it sometimes shares the screen with other logos.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A single, grand bell-like chime with a choir accompanying it.

Audio Variants:

  • Sometimes, the theme is either shortened, silent or has the closing theme play over, either with the sounds intact or not.
  • On Murderville, four whoosh sounds are heard, with a metal clank at the end.
  • On one episode of the above series, wind howling from the Abominable Pictures logo is heard due to an editing error.

Availability: Can be seen on Black-ish starting with season 5, and Grown-ish, The Gong Show, Hot Date, and The Last O.G. all starting with season 2. Also seen on Mixed-ish, Awkwafina is Nora from Queens, Hit & Run, and Murderville. This does not appear on the company's movies.
