Meaning and history

SpongeBob Logo history

It’s interesting, that the iconic cartoon character’s original name was not SpongeBob, but SpongeBoy, and the tv-series name had to be “SpongeBoy Ahoy”, but this name was already registered, so the creators came up with SpongeBob.


SpongeBob Logo 1997
The original logo for the Sponge Bob franchise was introduced in 1997 and stayed with it for a couple of years. It was a hand-drawn inscription in two levels, with both parts are written in the same style and size. The lettering was executed in bold orange lines with a thin black outline, which allowed placing it on various backgrounds without losing its brightness and recognizability.

The lettering was redrawn in pink and placed on a gradient blue background, representing the sea, where the main hero of the cartoon lives. On the left from the wordmark, there was a yellow image of Sponge Bob, and the blue background of the banner was decorated with simple contoured delivers in the darker shade of blue.
