Backstory Documentary Films tells the stories behind great people, things & ideas. Founded by Los Angeles documentary filmmaker, Helmut Kobler, Backstory gives viewers something real to believe in through compelling storytelling with a deeper human focus. The logo developed from the idea that documentaries reveal the background of something, investigating history and deeper recollections in order to bring forth a fuller understanding of it. A graphic storybook combined with a reversed letter B conveys the pages as a window to the world, that Backstory would be responsible for bringing forth to their clients.

Thanks again for the great work, and especially for the patience. I’m really enjoying all the work you did on Backstory. The identity you gave me played a big part in all of that. As always, I’m so impressed. You listened carefully to my goals, and delivered a completely original idea, which I love. I hope we get a chance to work together on more projects!
