Jurassic is a large media franchise that includes several movies, novels, as well as many other forms of entertainment. It is based off the book published in the 1990 that tells a story about a failed amusement park with live dinosaurs in it. The whole shtick is that people keep trying to tame them but fail miserably.
The novel was published in 1990, and in the same year Universal bought the rights to make a move out of it. 3 years later, the movie came out and became an instant classic. The franchise then entered a less successful age, but it’s still enjoyable to watch, even though they are obviously milking the idea at this point.
The first movie used this logo for most purposes. It’s a red circle with a black silhouette of a tyrannosaurus’ skeleton depicted on it. In the lower half of the circle is a black rectangular plaque with the words ‘JURASSIC PARK’ written in uneven white letters with thin streaks of red in them – styled as bones, obviously.
They also often outlined it in thick yellow.
The adaptation of the second book came out 4 years later. This one was given a logo that was basically built on the previous emblem. It was the same emblem, but with several additions.
Firstly, they put cracks all over the logo to highlight increased desperation in the film. Secondly, the plaque now read ‘THE LOST WORLD’ and then ‘JURASSIC PARK’ (below and smaller). The design was pretty much the same.
In addition to the yellow frame, they also added a thick black layer of outline.
The logo for Jurassic Park III was a bit different. They added volume to everything, which meant there was some texture and shading on the logo now. The black tyrannosaurus was replaced by a metal raptor with a longer snout and scarier features. Where the bottom of the circle featured jungle before, it also featured pterodactyls now.
The plaque was also metallic, but the text was the same design. It now read ‘JURASSIC PARK III’, where the number was just three consecutive claw marks.
The yellow outline was also replaced by metal, but the black additional layer persisted.
For the movie Jurassic World that came out 14 years later, they updated the concept just a bit. The volume and shading were even more prominent now, but almost all details migrated from the very first logo.
However, this time all the black details were metal grey with multi-layered texture. The letters stayed the same, but they were also pushed forwards a bit. And it obviously said ‘WORLD’ and not ‘PARK’ now.
The background noticeably changed from universally red to blue with additional lighting and shades in places.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was almost completely identical to its prequel’s emblem. This time, however, the background switched from blue to grey.
There were also additional emblem for spin-offs and other media. For instance, there is a show that started in 2020 on TV called ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’. Its logo is basically just the usual Jurassic Park logo but made from wood + the show name beneath it in the same writing style but with orange tint to it.
