Quincy Jones Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


This is the production company of Quincy Jones. In 1993, it was merged with David Salzman Enterprises, forming Quincy Jones-David Salzman Entertainment.

Logo (September 10, 1989-September 27, 1993)

Visuals: On a space background, there is a rhinoceros gray statue of what appears to be an alien. Now to the animation: the camera pans backwards to see that the statue is in a picture frame, and "QUINCY JONES ENTERTAINMENT" (in blue) appears (the "Q" in a strange design), and zooms back to place itself under the picture frame and the statue. "in association with" (also in blue) appears below.

Trivia: The statue seen in this logo, which is that of a West African fertility god, first appeared on the cover of Quincy Jones' 1981 album The Dude (still in print on CD from A&M Records) The lettering seen here is adapted from the Quincy Jones Productions logo, which often appeared on his many musical productions (most notably on Michael Jackson's 1979-87 recordings and his own Qwest record label, whose logo was another adaptation of the QJP logo) starting in 1976.

Technique: CGI produced at Synthespian Studios by Jeff Kleiser and Diana Walczak. This logo was created in Wavefront Advanced Visualizer on a Silicon Graphics Personal Iris 4D/70.

Audio: The end of the show's closing theme. One episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has a 3-note "outer space" tune.

Availability: Seen on the first three seasons of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It is left intact on reruns and Max prints.
