Ghostbusters is a popular American movie franchise that was first released in 1984. It features a group of four scientists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. The success of the movie led to a sequel, an animated TV series, and a reboot in 2016.
The Ghostbusters logo is one of the most recognizable movie logos in the world. It features a cartoon ghost with a red "no" symbol over it, surrounded by a circle. The logo was designed by Michael C. Gross, who was also the production designer for the movie.
The logo has become iconic and has been used on a wide variety of merchandise, including T-shirts, toys, and video games. The logo has also been parodied and referenced in many other movies, TV shows, and video games.
Interestingly, the logo was actually designed after the movie was already shot. The production team realized they needed a logo for the Ghostbusters business, and Gross quickly sketched out the design. The logo was originally going to feature a ghost holding a sword, but Gross decided to simplify it to the ghost with the "no" symbol.
