Nicknames: "The Compass", "The Personification of All That is Soothing"

Logo: On a sky blue background with shimmering water below, a dark blue compass flies down and eases in towards the screen. Soon it stops, the water disappears and below "ODYSSEY" in white fades in below.

Variant: The logo was used in a still for previews. It is upward and smaller with "OTHER TITLES FROM OUR CATALOGUE" in white below.

FX/SFX: The water, the compass, the company name fading in below.

Music/Sounds: A first portion of "Ave Maria" which is a soothing organ tune with a sound of waves washing ashore when the compass moves.

Availability: Seen on releases from the UK such as The Cartier Affair, That Sinking Feeling, Christmas on Division Street and Just Dennis.

Editors Note: A few might get a little nervous over the whoosh sound, but the light atmosphere of the logo and the music makes this one very soothing. The compass is a little cheap but really not that bad.

2nd Logo
(Mid 1990s-)

Logo: A gold colored compass is shown on a black background along with the company name in gold capital lettering.

FX/SFX: This is a still logo.

Music/Sounds: None

Availability: Current.

Editors Note: Compared to the previous logo, it's boring.
