Of the artwork, Rob Sheridan went on to state: "For Nine Inch Nails' album, we created logos representing each song, and embedded them in the MP3s to give each song its own visual identity when played digitally. Each logo played upon the meaning or title of the song, sometimes overtly, sometimes very abstractly. A scribbled red line crossed into most of the images, struggling to find harmony with the shapes, but ultimately failing." In a Patreon Q&A session[https://www.patreon.com/posts/ rob-sheridan-ama-34278427], Sheridan was asked about the art for "Demon Seed" and he explained that it was "the end of the journey of the red line that moved through the artwork of that record, trying to make sense of the rigid forms, sometimes fighting them, before finally overtaking them. It was Trent' s idea to have the line take over ' Demon Seed' so completely/aggressively. It tied in to the meaning behind the music, which isn't my place to discuss as TR tends to keep that stuff close to his chest."
According to a [ http:// sound. jp/ hardlistening/ interviews/modwheelmood2_1.html Japanese interview] with [[modwheelmood]], the hand on the cover of ''The Slip'' is that of Alessandro Cortini, while the shoulder is Reznor's. The cover of the booklet is a new piece of artwork that depicts several light gray lines on a dark background (the same color as the one for 1,000,000). Five lines, two on the ends and three in the middle, all travel straight downward from the top edge to the bottom. Two more lines, in between the three middle and two outside, on each side, start straight downward, then slant inward, then travel straight downward parallel to the other lines before they would intersect the ones in the middle. These lines combined form a variation on the [[Logo History|NIN logo]] (second "N" being backwards).
