Fandom was originally launched as Wikicities in 2004. This logo was created by Jason Richey.
This logo, designed by Christoph Struber, was selected as the winner of the 2006 Wikicities logo contest.
In February 2007, Wikicities was renamed as Wikia. The previous logo design was used for a short time, albeit with the new name.
An entirely new logo for Wikia, designed by Mike Bohrer, was introduced in June 2007. The "i"s in the wordmark are amended to look like square brackets, an element commonly used in editing on Wikia to link to URLs or articles.
2012–2016 (Still used today as a secondary logo)
The 2007 logo was modified with a different bolder typeface and was revealed on October 5, 2011, and later launched on March 20, 2012. From the Fandom launch, until a new logo was introduced, it was still used as a secondary logo.
Wikia had first launched Fandom as a sub brand on January 25, 2016. The logo consisted of a geometric heart outlined with a green and blue gradient, with the word "fandom" in a custom-made font. In September 2016, it was speculated that the entire Wikia platform would be rebranded under the Fandom name.
On September 26, it was announced that Wikia would, in fact, be undergoing the rename, starting on October 4, 2016. Fandom and Wikia were then merged into "Fandom powered by Wikia".
On May 18, 2017, the color of the heart symbol was changed to be completely blue and the font was changed, now being in all-caps. Fandom's name also started to be stylized in all-caps at this time.
As of 2018 the secondary logo with the words "Powered by Wikia" is no longer used.
Fandom still hosts some wikis with more serious topics- like history, advocacy, politics, and religion- under wikia.org.
