2011–2015, 2011–2023 (Java Edition)[]

Minecraft
Designer:  Markus Toivonen [1]
Typography:  Custom-designed
Launched:  March 31, 2011 (JE Beta 1.4)

Following the full release of Minecraft at MineCon on November 18, 2011, Mojang started to use officially the logo from Beta 1.8 as the main logo of the franchise (although it actually first appeared on Beta 1.4, but with a slightly different design that was changed later). Despite this logo being discontinued in 2015, it was still used as an in-game logo in the Java Edition until the release of the 1.20 update in 2023.

2011–2015[]

Minecraft (alternate)
Designer:  Markus Toivonen
Typography:  Custom-designed
Launched:  May 7th, 2011 (Minecraft.net)

An improved redesign of the logo was first seen on the official website around 2011, before the full release of the game. It would later be used in tandem with logo above until 2015, mostly in merchandise and other type of media. It was also used in the Pocket (before v0.7.1) and Xbox 360 Editions.

2013–2021[]

Minecraft logo

The modified version of the previous logo with a gradient added, originally first appeared in a promotional logo of the Java Edition Adventure Update (Beta 1.8.1). However, it wouldn't be used officially until the release of the PlayStation 3 Edition and other consoles versions of the game between 2013 and 2014.

After Microsoft bought Mojang in 2014, this logo became the main logo of the franchise since 2015. This logo was used for the Bedrock Edition until the 1.17.30 update.

2016–2023 (Education Edition)[]

Minecraft (2016)

This polished version was used in the Education Edition until 2023.

2019–2022 (Minecraft Live)[]

Minecraft 2019

Another polished version, with a lighter shade of gray, was first seen in the logo of Minecraft Live and Minecraft Festival.

2021–present[]

2021–present (primary)[]

Minecraft logo 2
Designer:  Bold Scandinavia
Typography:  Minecraft Ten (custom-designed, modified)
Launched:  June 8, 2021 (1.17 update website)

September 21, 2021 (in-game)

An updated design was first seen in a promotional logo of the Caves & Cliffs update (JE 1.18), (BE 1.18.0). Changes included that the gradient was inverted, the lettering was made squarer, and the rifts were made more symmetrical. This new logo debuted in Bedrock Edition 1.17.30 (including its betas), replacing the 2013 logo.

2021–present (secondary)[]

Minecraft-core-brand
Designer:  Bold Scandinavia
Typography:  Minecraft Ten (custom-designed, modified)
Launched:  August 31, 2021 (announcement)

September 1, 2021 (Minecraft.net)

On August 31, 2021, one of Mojang's workers, Ined, officially announced on his Twitter account that a flat logo would begin to be used for the franchise while the detailed one would still be used for the game itself. This change took effect on Minecraft's official website. The logo itself looks similar to the polished logo used for Minecraft Live and Minecraft Festival, but with minor changes like the outline is thicker, the reflections in the letters were removed and the creeper face in the "A" was slightly altered.
