K/O Paper Products

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


K/O Paper Products (also known as Kurtzman/Orci Paper Products) was an American film and television production company founded by screenwriters Alex Kurtzman (who also owns his sole company Secret Hideout) and Roberto Orci in 2004. They are best known for their work on the CBS shows Hawaii Five-0 (the 2010 series, which used the number "0" in place of the letter "O") and Scorpion. In 2016, the duo announced the end of their partnership, effectively rendering the company defunct; this logo remained on use on their series that were still running until Hawaii Five-0 ended in 2020.

Logo (September 20, 2010-April 3, 2020)

Visuals: The screen fades in on words in a typewriter font on white background. The camera slowly pulls back to reveal a script being written on a typewriter with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's hands typing. They stop for a bit as the hand on the left pushes the shift key to the right as the words "K/O PAPER PRODUCTS" in a light brown-ish font fade in and the hands resume typing.


  • On TV shows, the logo is shortened with the logo already formed and just the hands typing.
  • On Scorpion, the logo is squished and shares the screen with the Blackjack Films logo.

Technique: Live-action with the name superimposed. This was done by John Frost.

Audio: Typing sounds and ding sound with the opening theme. The shortened version just has the typing and ding sounds, the end theme of the show, or none.

Audio Variant: On seasons 1-2 of Hawaii Five-0, a majestic piece plays that continues into the 101st Street Television logo.

Availability: Seen on People Like Us, Now You See Me and its sequel, Now You See Me 2, Hawaii Five-0 on CBS, Transformers: Prime on The Hub, the 2013 Sleepy Hollow series on Fox, Matador on El Rey Network, Scorpion on CBS, and the 2015 Limitless series on CBS.
