This famous design forges a lightning struck design that was created by the iconic graphic designer, Gerard Huerta.
Like many other rock band logo designs, this image was created by the band guitarist Ace Frehley. This was created for their album “hotter than hell” that perfectly suits the image.
Their monogram is created by the group’s front man and song writer, Ville Valo on the day of his 20th birthday. The symbol is a combination of a heart and inverted pentagram that signifies love and hate.
