ARE (Agencja Reklamowa Elgaz)

(1985-1992)

Nicknames: "ARE", "Construction Triangle"

Logo: On a blue background, a trapezoid flips in and flips into place, followed by an rectangle, 2 sets of striped triangles, yellow and black, then fly in and form into place, with a cutout for the text "ARE". As everything settles, "STUDIO VIDEO" and "PREZENTUJE" slide in. It then goes through the warning screen then a short version of the logo.
