Logo From a pixelated background of grey digital noise emerges a shadowy screaming skull, reminiscent of 90s hacker graphics and the Lizard Squad / Sony hack. However, seen close up, every pixel contains a dollar sign implying that these are not politically motivated but are mercenary in nature. The logotype at the bottom is in the classic OCR credit card font, and the stencilled logotype at the top is an angular futuristic high-readibility stencil that shows some spray paint spatter.
