Lynch/Frost Productions

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Lynch/Frost Productions was a production company that was founded by cult filmmakers David Lynch (who also runs Asymmetrical Productions) and Mark Frost, creators and executive producers of Twin Peaks.

1st Logo (April 8, 1990)

Visuals: On a black background is the text "LYNCH / FROST" in white above "PRODUCTIONS, INC." also in white, all in a Stencil font.

Technique: A still graphic.

Audio: Just some electric zapping.

Availability: It's only seen on the original pilot of Twin Peaks, which is currently on DVD and on Netflix. The international version (and the Artisan DVD) has the next logo.

2nd Logo (September 30, 1990-July 4, 1992, May 21-September 3, 2017)

Visuals: There is a massive short circuit somewhere in the logo as what appear to be two racks that are placed one above the other are seen. The top has the words "LYNCH/FROST" and the bottom has the word "PRODUCTIONS" below. Meanwhile, electricity zaps, lights go on and off in different sides and corners, and two metallic circles appear randomly behind the racks.

Variant: On episode 8 of the 2017 Twin Peaks reboot, the logo is in black and white to fit with the episode's theme.

Technique: Deliberately crude stop-motion animation.

Audio: An extended version of the electric sizzling from the previous logo.

Availability: Can be seen on DVD releases and reruns of both the original and the 2017 reboot of Twin Peaks. Was also seen on On the Air.

Legacy: This is a memorable logo among those who have watched Twin Peaks for its flashing imagery, although it isn’t as infamous as the logo from Lynch's other company.
