Official Minidisc Logo

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the official minidisc logo, prefereably a vector or high resolution. There's a few on the web but they seem to be fan recreations with varying degrees of accuracy.

I've had a look at the one on wikipedia, but if you look at the letter 'M' see how it tapers inwards, I'm sure the one on my recorder doesn't do that.

I hadn't really looked at it that closely but, you're right, the 'M' does look a bit odd.

I went to have a look at the logos on my players and you can't see the same tapering. But, I took a photo of the largest official MD logo I could find, on a box of Sony MDW80T blank discs, and when I zoomed in on the photo it shows the same sort of slight curves on the middle V shaped part of the 'M'.

I am not saying with any certainty that the logo on Wikipedia is 100% official but a similar tapering is on the logo on my box of blanks.

Thanks, you might be right. The wikipedia logo is on a transparent background so the tapering is emphasised.

I have a box of 80 min blanks from sony dating back 2016 and the logo is quite big on the front and it has exactly this shape.

Yes, I think I have some of the same. The 'M' does taper towards the angles.

I understand your problem and am seeking a high resolution version of the logo as well. I am making my own minidisc labels and the minidisc logo is quite pixelated and fuzzy. We need to find a high resolution, clear version of the minidisc logo.

The one on wikipedia is an svg file, it will scale to any size. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MiniDiscLogo.svg
