Design: A well-arranged label, with all components clearly and logically contained. Here, the red and gold combination is legible.
History: Founded by Emile Berliner in 1898 as the German branch of his phonograph business venture, Deutsche Grammophon was linked to the British Gramophone Co. and American Victor, but the connection was severed with the onset of WWI (Wikipedia).
