Meaning and history

Syfy Logo history

The visual identity of the science-fiction tv-channel looks very futuristic and confident. Though the first versions, designed from 1992 to 2009, were all based on the image of a placed with a diagonal emblem, the channel changed its design concept after changing the name from “Sci Fi” to “Syfy”.

The first logo for the new name was created in 2009 and used the purple color of the previous version. It was a very simple wordmark in a title case, which was executed in a bold sans-serif typeface with smoothly arched tails of “Y” and rounded sides of “S” and “F”.

The redesign of 2017 brought a new mood to the logo. It became powerful and sharp, reflecting the character of the channel and its audience.

The new monochrome color palette only elevated the whole looks, adding a sense of professionalism and stability, showing the channel’s expertise and authority, and making it timeless and actual, wherever it is placed.
