The logo consists of two print horses on both sides facing each other with a cyan gridded globe atop a shield in the center. Inside the shield is an F and V, both in red and in the same font shown in the Viva Films logo. Below the shield is a banner with the company name in red inside it. The four images forms into one and remain before splitting and disappearing.
