About Columbia Pictures Font

columbia screen

Columbia Pictures is an American film production and distribution studio. Originally founded in 1918 as “Cohn-Brandt-Cohn Film Sales”, it adopted the current name in 1924, which is derived from “Columbia”, a national personification of the United States, which is used as the studio’s screen logo.

The font used for the screen logo of Columbia Pictures is very similar to Columbia, a sans serif font made by the DeviantArt user 629Lyric based on the logo itself. You can download the sans serif font here.

For the printed logo of the studio as shown below, it is set in Bank Gothic, a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Morris Fuller Benton.
