1st Logo (In-credit variants) (September 5, 1999-)

Visuals: There is a gold swirl-like object. Behind the object are two rectangles with "FUTUR" and "IKON" respectively.

Technique: A still, digital graphic.

Audio: None or the closing theme.

Availabililty: It can be seen at the end of Fly Tales, Monster Allergy, Kaput & Zosky, Gloria, Wilma & Me, Minuscule, Iron Nose, The Minimighty Kids and Chronokids among others. This logo is usually used as an in-credit logo for most of Futurikon's projects.

2nd Logo (March 20, 2008-)

Visuals: On a white background, there is a black dot fall onto the floor. Then the dot starts drawing a gold swirl-like object. After the object draws, the dot begins to bounce in, forming the words "FUTUR" in white on a black square and "IKON" in black with a black outline, creating a box-like rectangle. Finally, the dot lands to the letter "I".


  • A short version exists, where it begins when the dot bounces.
  • A still version exists.
  • There is another version where the words "Films" is shown below. It was first seen on the original French release of the 2008 film Dragon Hunters, which used the animated variant.
  • A letterboxed version exists, this was used on some films from the company such as Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants.
  • On Minuscule 2: Mandibles from Far Away, a custom variant is used where green leaves grow behind the logo.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A dropping sound when the dot drops, followed by a 12-note piano tune when the words appears. Composed by Nicolas Joel Paul Francois Jorio. Otherwise, the ending theme is used.

Availability: The logo first appeared on Dragon Hunters (2008). It can be seen on most of the recent Futurikon productions besides the 1st logo. The short version is used on their animated series starting such as the second season of Minuscule and Chronokids (Crafty Kids Club uses the full version of the logo at the end). The still version can be seen on Willa's Wild Life on YTV, as well as reruns on Nick Canada and Qubo.
