Tucked away in a blog post about the 25 greatest movie posters of all time is this little gem:
But who was behind the design of the logo itself? It was a mystery for years until the release of the movie on Blu-ray in 2009 when art director John DeCuir Jr. revealed that it was the brainchild of writer Dan Ackroyd himself. ”The no-Ghost logo was in Danny Ackroyd’s first script,” DeCuir Jr admitted. “I take credit as having art directed and designed the original logo but I did not conceive it.”
I did not know that before today.
