Warner Bros. Pictures (first era)


Warner Bros. Classics


Warner Bros. 1923

This is the very first Warner Bros. Shield Logo, nicknamed the "Brain Shield". The top half of the shield included a photo of the exterior of the their original studio building, with the "WB" initials occupying the bottom half, separated by a small dash. The title card with this variant of the logo includes the text "A Warner Brothers CLASSIC of the SCREEN" and later replaced with "A Warner Brothers PRODUCTION" in 1926.


Warner Bros. 1928



This was the first logo design in which "WB" filled the whole shield.

This version of the WB shield emphasizes how Warner Bros. didn't listen to Jack L. Warner's dislike of sound films. There are two different types of the lettering "WARNER BROS. PICTURES, Inc." This logo was also used on Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons.


Warner Bros. 1937

This variation of the WB Shield, nicknamed the "Zooming Shield", was short-lived. When the movie started, the shield manifested from a distance against a backdrop of clouds and zoomed swiftly toward the camera until it filled the screen. Afterwards, the text "WARNER BROS. PICTURES, Inc." and "Presents" beneath superimposed over the shield. This logo was retained on Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons long after its inception. See Warner Bros. Classic Animation for that variation.



The famous "WB shield". There are a few variants to this logo. A version of this with "INC." removed and the TimeWarner byline replacing "Presents" is found on the 2006 film The Good German.

WB logo

The logo is a cleaned-out version of the previous one. Note how it resembles the current WB shields used from 1984 onward. Sometimes the shield would appear differently.

Warner Bros. 2nd

This print logo was first seen at the end of "Hondo" in 1953. It is used today as a print logo for film trailers.

Warner Bros.-Seven Arts


Warner Bros. 1967

This version is completely different from before. For the first time in WB history, the text "WB" was nowhere to be found on the logo. Instead a "W7", symbolizing its merger with Seven Arts, appeared.

Warner Bros.

Despite the name change on its logo to Warner Bros. Pictures in 1984, the film company was still referred to as Warner Bros. until 2001.

This logo was once used one of the background used on the 1948 logo that would later be used on the 1984 logo. This was used during the period Warner Bros. was owned by Kinney National Company, and that firm's name would sometimes appear inside the rectangular block in place of "Warner Bros." in the logo.




Warner W

Famed logo designer Saul Bass, also responsible for the Geffen "G" and the United Airlines logos of the '70s created this logo, which was very unpopular in its time. However, this is still used as a logo today for other Warner properties (mainly the now-unrelated Warner Music Group), and the stylized typeface was used for WB's home video division from 1978 to 1996.



Used on print materials such as posters from 1993 onward.
