Supernatural Logo

The American fantasy horror television series Supernatural, which was created by Eric Kripke, has had a distinctive wordmark since it was first broadcast in 2005. In addition to it, the movie featured several symbols, with a slightly different meaning than they typically have in occultism.

Meaning and history Supernatural Logo

history Supernatural Logo

The original Supernatural logo, which was introduced in 2005, featured quite a regular typeface. Although it was an all-cap font, the first letter was a bit higher than others.

All the following wordmarks looked much more sinister due to the choice of color and unusual visual effects. For instance, the Season Two wordmark was given in “fiery” letters, the Season Three logo had an effect of a lightning bolt, the Season Four emblem looked “bloody”, while the Season Seven letters resembled black blood.

Pentagram symbol Supernatural

Both the heroes, Sam and Dean, have a Protection Tattoo depicting a pentagram. One of the most well-known occult symbols, pentagram, is most often used to convey the idea of five elements. However, in the Supernatural series the pentagram has a different meaning. The tattoo is one of the ways to protect Sam and Dean from evil forces: it does not let demons possess their bodies.

Aquarian Star emblem Supernatural

The unicursal hexagram, which was developed by the 19th century Hermentic Order of the Golden Dawn, typically symbolizes the union of opposites. However, in the movie it is used as an emblem of a secret society called the Men of Letters.

Arguably, the most unusual feature of the Supernatural symbol is that the wordmark has a downward direction. The letter “R” has a longer right end pointing down, while the “A” and the “L” are positioned a bit lower in the line. Possibly, the design team was trying to convey the idea of moving down, to the world of the dark forces.
