The animated Batman Series, first aired on 5th September, 1992 featured Harley Quinn in the episode, “Joker’s Favor.” While Harley Quinn was never intended to be a recurring character, she snatched the spotlight with her devious personality and made people fall in love. This lead to her role expansion in series to come, making her one of the most prominent antagonists of the DC Universe.

DC Comics recently unveiled the Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Logo which would culminate in September. Harley Quinn has many traits and personalities that distinguishes her from rest of the DC Universe. Therefore, to create a logo design that describes her the best must have been a real challenge for the designers. However, the creative designers at DC Comics have done a fantastic job in capturing the essence of Harley Quinn in the new logo, and that too in time for the 25th Anniversary Special scheduled for September, later this year.
The new Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Logo is basically a Harlequin face in its original colors-half red and half black- with the signature Harlequin smile and a big “Harley Quinn 25” written above the smile. The announcement of the new logo was made on Social Media with an official hashtag; #HarleyQuinn25.

Logo Design is of extreme importance when it comes to superheroes and villains as it reflects who they truly are. Superheroes and villains are mostly recognized by their logo design. One of the most famous examples being Batman and how Commissioner Gordon uses the “Bat-Signal” which projects a silhouette of Batman’s logo into the sky that lets him know that he is needed. Fans around the world have given a positive feedback to the new logo design claiming it to be a brilliant tribute to the original Harley Quinn, for if it was not for her charm and wit in 1992, we would not have had a 25th Anniversary Special, let alone a Harley Quinn 25th-Year Anniversary Logo tribute.
