It's by prototype 21 isn't it? Simon Parkes?

 

Anyway it's an 'A' with a 'p' on it's right leg and an 'h' rotated acting as the line off the top.

You could try and take it further and read an 'E' and an 'X' from it, but I think that might be stretching it a bit too far.

 

Relates to where the Aphex name came from mentioned in the back of an old Future Music issue.

 

'A' is for Acid

'ph' is for the level (ph level being a measure of acidity)

'ex' is because it sounded good.

or...he stole it.

 

why else would he credit the Aphex company on some of his records?

It's an A.

7\ is just how to type it.

I thought it was an A and a T.

The top part of the 7 being the T?

Has nobody in here seen the way "Aphex Twin" is written out with the 7\ as the A?

I think you're stretching it a bit far already. A 'p' and an 'h'? That logo is just an 'a'.

Its just a font. Its the letter A

 

Aphex got his name from a company that makes the aphex aural exciter.

I bet this is what happened. Aphex was typing on his computer. He typed 7\ and then called his graphic design friend and said, make me a logo that looks like that. Done.

It was Paul Nicholson, wasn't it? I think he also used to dance onstage at early Aphex shows. He now runs the clothing company Terratag.
