The Paramount Pictures name first materialized in 1913, during the company's early years as a distribution company. Paramount would become a wholly owned division of Famous Players Film Company 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.
During this period, Paramount's was owned by Gulf+Western which would later go on to be re-branded as Paramount Communications after an asset management. The re-branding was made in order to better associate the company with its Paramount assets. Paramount Communications was later acquired and integrated into Viacom.
