RatPac Entertainment, a partnership between Brett Ratner and James Packer, won a slate deal with Warner Bros. to co-finance 75 films between 2013 and 2017. Our firm was tasked with creating a logo for RatPac to appear along with the Warner Bros. logo as part of the films’ opening credits. Since, according to Director’s Guild rules, a director’s name must be the first proper name to appear in a film, it was essential to create a trademark that would remain distinctive and could act as a visual shorthand even without the RatPac name.
The design of the RatPac logo fuses together a capital R and P, representing the partnership in a strong, distinctive way. The simple form works well in the motion-graphic signatures required for cinema credits, while the bold overall mark can be easily reduced for digital and print applications. The new RatPac logo will also identify the various divisions of the new media brand: RatPac Documentary Films, RatPac Television, and RatPac Press.
