Friends Logo history

The visual identity of the iconic sitcom was designed in 1994 and has never been changed. Its logotype became as significant as the series itself in the history of contemporary cinematography.

Friends Logo

The Friends emblem was designed by Deborah Naysee, and despite it was created in 1994, today it still looks trendy and sleek. The logo is based on a custom black inscription with six colorful dots between the letters. The dots in the composition symbolize six friends, the main characters of the sitcom.

The black bold letters of the logotype are smooth and soft, looking like they were handwritten and evoking a very welcoming and friendly mood, brilliantly reflecting the essence and character of the series.

The bright details of the logo represent brightness and fun, energy and love of the Friends’ characters, adding freshness and edginess to the overall composition and making the simple and laconic logo eye-catching and memorable.


Friends Logo-2019

The Friends logo was redesigned just once, in 2019, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the most popular sitcom on American Television. The refreshed version got its letters refined and cleaned, the colorful dots changed their order and the ornate and fancy framing was placed above the logotype.

The vertically oriented white rectangle in a double black and yellow outline was enclosed in an ornate frame, composed of four curved lines with vignettes in their ends. The lines are executed in the same black and yellow palette as the rectangular outline.

In the middle of the emblem, the “25 Years” inscription is placed, with the numbers set in bold red lines, and the letters written in delicate black under them.
