1st Logo (1990-2000)
Logo: On a black background, a stylized box zooms in. It is made up of four brushstrokes, two red (one light and one dark) and two yellow (ditto). A white line is drawn to the left and "LUCKY", in a western font, flies out on top of it, followed by another line and "RED" appearing in the same manner, albeit colored red. "DISTRIBUZIONE" fades in underneath in a sans serif font.
Technique: The parts of the logo flying.
Music/Sounds: An arpeggiating synth-piano theme.
Availability: Seen on some Italian film releases of the time.
2nd Logo (2000-)
Logo: On a black background, we see the red/yellow box from the last logo drawing in line-by-line. Afterwards, the text "LUCKY RED", in its usual position but now in a sans serif font, fades in. "DISTRIBUZIONE" is then typed in underneath the logo.
- Sometimes, the text at the bottom reads "PRODUZIONE".
- During the early life, the logo only fades in. The text is also bolder.
Technique: The lines drawing in, the text fading.
Music/Sounds: A repeating 3-note piano/string theme, ending with a cello hit. None for the early variant.
Availability: Common on film releases in Italy. This is also used as a de-facto home entertainment logo on their DVD and later VHS releases.
