The original company, For Life Records, was liquidated in 2001 and split off into the current incarnation of it in 2002.

Logo (May 27, 1989)

Visuals: On a yellow background, two rounded rhombuses, masked through the background and displaying a starfield, slide in from the left within the left and right sides of the screen. Afterwards, two bordered blue violet copies of the shapes fly out of the holes. The still rhombuses crossfade to black bordered versions of themselves, shrink, and slide to the right, splitting away from black filled copies, which pan to the opposite direction. Underneath the four rhombuses, "FOR LIFE" flips in vertically.

Technique: Analog computer animation.

Audio: None.

Availability: The logo is seen on the 1989 Laserdisc release of Anri in Concert.
