Visuals: On a gray background, there is a cursive letter "B". In front of the letter "B", there are several black shapes with letters inside. The letter "A" is inside a black circle on top, each letter of the word "BRISKIN" is inside a black square except for the letters "I" which are inside a rectangle, and the word "PRODUCTION" inside a wide black ellipse on the bottom, all in the Clarendon font.
