No one understands brand development better than the Hollywood. What makes them really good at it is the options have they have when they are developing these brands. They are able to incorporate story lines, themes, plot and a whole lot of other things into their brands. Hollywood has always inspired artists from across the globe. Logo Designers are no exception to that. Some logos created, used and popularized by Hollywood are so famous that people from all over the world instantly recognize these logos and associate them with the brand or the movie franchise they represent. The popularity of these logos is a wonderful inspiration, as a tribute we decided to share some of the most widely recognized fictional logos.

Superman logo

This logo, or the emblem appears on the Superman’s costume. It is also known as the “S Sheild”. This logo was the first of its kind. It was an attempt to develop a brand image for a comic character. It was first introduced in the very first issue of Action Comics back in 1938. Since then there had been many variations to the original logo but the basic theme remains the same in all Superman movies, animations, tv series. The S in this logo obviously represents superman, the shield is the symbol of protection.
Batman Logo

Superman’s successful brand development inspired many other comic characters particularly super heroes to come up with a logo of their own, most notably among them is the Batman franchise. However the logo on the chest of the batman did not appear until 1964, when this yellow eclipse background with a bat emblem was first introduced on Batman’s costume.

Jurassic Park logo

One of the most successful movies of all time, Jurassic Park was branded heavily and the brand designers had really high goals in their minds from the first movie. The developed a brand that was not only representing a fictional zoo but also to be used on memorabilia, collectible items and Universal studios’ theme park of the same name.

    Who own the copyright of this fictional logo? How to contact the owner?

  6. joey says:

    @Daniel which logo you are talking about? Most these logos appeared in movies, television and comic books. So who ever owns that production or publication also owns the copyright of the logo.
