The logo, designed for the Danny Phantom prototype in 2002, featured stylized black-and-white lettering in two levels. The top line of the badge, with the “Danny” inscription, was set in a bold italicized sans-serif typeface with traditional clean contours of the uppercase characters. As for the bottom, the enlarged part with the “Phantom” was hand-drawn, and boasted wavy contours, and elongated bars with pointed ends, which made up the “ghostly” mood and reflected the plot and essence of the series.

2003 – 2007

Danny Phantom Logo

The official Danny Phantom logo was introduced in 2003 and has never been changed since then. The new badge was also based on the lettering and had only one graphical element on it — the orange ghost silhouette with the white “Nickelodeon” wordmark on it. The emblem was coming out from the last letter of the upper level and was moving upright, with its hands spread. As for the main part of the badge, the logotype, it was rewritten in a geometric sans-serif typeface, with clean straight contours of the uppercase characters. The new color of the letters featured black to blue gradients, with the turquoise-green accents on the shadows. The whole composition was decorated by a slightly visible light turquoise orbit.

Font and color

Danny Phantom Emblem

The lettering from the official Danny Phantom logo is set in a custom designer typeface, which doesn’t have many commercial analogies but has something in common with such fonts as Space Cadet Regular, or Neurotic Roman Oblique JNL, but of course, with significant modifications.

As for the color palette of the Danny Phantom visual identity, it’s main color is black, but the bottom line of the inscription features dark blue gradients. Also, a turquoise shade of blue, used in the shadows on the characters, adds recognizability and freshness to the composition, and the orange ghost, apart from being the Nickelodeon signifier, makes the logo look more friendly and fun.
