Famous Players Film Company
Paramount Pictures was first founded in 1912 as Famous Players Film Company by Adolph Zukor, and was renamed Famous Players-Lasky Corporation four years later.
Paramount Pictures Corporation
The Paramount name first materialized in 1914, during the company's early years as a distribution company. Paramount would become a wholly owned division of Famous Players at around 1916.
During this period, Paramount's logo consisted of a drawing of a mountain peak placed inside a circular field of stars with the company name in a script font, a design which has since been passed onto all of the company's subsequent logo designs.
1986–1987 (75th anniversary logo)
An early version of the 1989 logo with the early Paramount Communications byline.
On March 11, 1994, Paramount Pictures was purchased by Viacom, and Viacom's name was integrated into their logo's byline as a result. This print logo began appearing on promotional material in 1995.
2002 (90th anniversary logo)
Paramount Pictures slightly updated their onscreen and print logos by replacing the former Viacom byline's font with the new Viacom font, which was introduced in 2005. This print logo was replaced by the 100 Years logo in 2012, but later returned the next year.
2011–2012 (100th anniversary logo)
When Paramount Pictures marked its 100th anniversary, their onscreen and print logos were heavily updated, using a new look for the mountain and switching the background back to daytime. This print logo was first revealed on posters for the 2012 3D re-release of Titanic in November 2011.
This print logo was abandoned from usage sometime in 2013, and was replaced with the 2010 print logo.This is now used within the logo design of the Paramount Channel.
