Expert Software

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Expert Software, Inc. was a budget software company founded in Coral Gables, Florida by Ken and Sue Currier. The company developed and sold inexpensive software programs, usually under $15, in discount stores, supermarkets, drugstores, and other common places. In 1999, the company was acquired by Activision, and in August 2000, they merged Expert with HeadGames Publishing to form Activision Value.

Logo (March 10, 1995-1999)

Visuals: There are three "X"'s spinning toward the screen as scrolling green, black, and gray blocks are lighted. The "X"'s spin to the screen and disappear as a large "X" spins in place. A red "X" and letters making the word "EXPERT" flicker and the lines shrink into a border and a refined blue rectangle flies into place. The outline and rectangle collide together and the name appears with "SOFTWARE" and "BRAND" beside the "T". A light passes by the logo.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Cutting-like sounds with a "SLAM!" sound when the outline and rectangle collide.

Availability: Probably seen on old software, or from Sega CD/Sega Saturn direct-to-PC games. Also seen on Sonic 3 & Knuckles for PC.
