Paramount Pictures (1914)
Logopedia InfoWhite SVG NEEDED

Despite Paramount Pictures as a film studio being established on May 8, 1912, the actual Paramount Pictures name first materialized in 1914, during the company's early years as a distribution company. Paramount would become a wholly owned division of Famous Players Film Company at around 1916.


Paramount Pictures 1914
Designer:  William Wadsworth Hodkinson
Typography:  Custom
Launched:  September 1914

During this period in 1914, Paramount's logo (designed by William Wadsworth Hodkinson) consisted of a drawing of a mountain peak placed inside a circular field of 29 stars with the company name in a script font, a design which has since been passed onto all of the company's subsequent logo designs.


Paramount Pictures 1917
Designer:  Unknown
Typography:  Custom
Launched:  1917

Compared to the previous logo, this one was simplified, and the number of stars was decreased to 24, one for every actor that had a contract with the studio at the time. This logo was still used in the byline on the Paramount Television logo until 1968.

Designer:  Unknown
Typography:  Custom
Launched:  November 1967

In November 1967, Paramount modified the logo by removing the clouds at the foot of the mountain, and then updated the text to drop the word "Pictures". Two of the stars were also dropped, reducing the number to 22. Despite this, the logo was never updated on-screen to this variant until 1975.
