First Netflix Logo design (1997-2000)
The very first logo Netflix’s had when they started off was a very common black text logo with the title Netflix.com with the Netflix logo split into “Net” and “Flix” with a circle in the shape of a film reel.
They kept the first logo design from 1997 to 2000 and then they redesigned the logo into one of the most iconic designs that people will know and remember.
Second Netflix Logo design (2000-2014)
Netflix’s Second Logo is one of the most iconic design. The Netflix Second Logo has a red background and a white font and black stroke with the font. The font design in the Netflix logo appears to be “Graphique” as the logo has a thick design on the right side of the text/letters giving it a 3D look to make it stand out.
Third Netflix Logo design (2014 – Present)
Netflix’s Third Logo is the current logo being used for the company which was designed in 2014 and has been used to this day.
The Third Netflix Logo looks to be the same as the Second Logo Design but does have differences when the two are compared. The third Logo drops the White and Black “Graphique” font and went for a different font and used its trademark red color as the Font’s color. With that color, the red background was dropped in favor of a white and/or transparent background. The red color in the Netflix logo represents passion, energy and joy.
Alongside the third Logo, there is another logo made to identify the brand easier. The Logo is simply a letter N with the same font style, color, one thing about the N is that the letter has a fold or ribbon design to the N.
The Netflix logo has changed throughout the years to meet the company’s goals. Its gracefully streamlined appearance works well at all sizes, so the logo looks good on a big-screen television or a tiny smartphone screen.
