South Park Digital Studios

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Background

South Park Digital Studios was founded in 2007 as a joint venture between Matt Stone and Trey Parker's South Park Studios and Viacom (now Paramount Global) to license and produce games and digital content based on the South Park franchise, in addition to licensing the series to streaming services such as Hulu and Max.

1st Logo (October 7, 2009; December 10, 2012)

Visuals: Over a black background is Eric Cartman's eyes in a rectangular box with the text "SOUTH PARK" next to it, and "DIGITAL STUDIOS" below it. This looks similar to South Park Studios' original logo.

Variant: On the second trailer of South Park: The Stick of Truth, Cartman's eyes are closer to the border. Also, the logo is slowly zooming forward.

Technique: A still digital graphic.

Audio: None. The opening theme of the trailer for a variant.

Availability: Seen on South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play! and the second trailer of South Park: The Stick of Truth (said game uses the next logo instead).

2nd Logo (March 30, 2012-)

Visuals: On a black background, there are four blocky, abstract shapes that represent the main characters of South Park (Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick in that order). "SOUTH PARK DIGITAL STUDIOS" is seen below in a white, retro pixel font.

Trivia: As of 2020, the logo is also used for the South Park website, as it is also operated by South Park Digital Studios.

  • On South Park: Phone Destroyer, the logo shares the screen with the Ubisoft Entertainment and Ubisoft RedLynx logos.
    • On a trailer of said game, flame progresses through the main logos.

  • On South Park: The Fractured But Whole, there is printer sounds as the text appears.
