The Sci•Fi Channel was launched on September 24, 1992 by USA Networks. The original visual identity borrowed heavily from the classics in the genre and sci-fi clichés.

Sci Fi


The Sci-Fi Channel was relaunched in March 1999 with several new shows, and they also dropped the hyphen and "Channel" from the name.[1][2]


Sci Fi 2002

A new look and a new logo for Sci Fi was launched on December 2, 2002, with the launch of the Steven Spielberg miniseries Taken. The new look was created with help from Lambie-Nairn of London.[3][4][5] They also rolled out the slogan with a single word, "If", spelled from the first "I" and the "F" of the channel name.



Syfy logo

On March 16, 2009, NBCUniversal announced that Sci Fi would be rebranded as Syfy. One reason mentioned was that the name "Sci Fi" couldn't be trademarked. The new name was rolled out on screen on July 7, 2009.

The ID's and on-air-look for the channel were developed by the London-based studios Proud Creative and ManvsMachine. A font called "Syfy Sans" was created by Brooklyn-based Village Type Foundry.
