IFunny: Brand overview

Founded:April 26, 2011

The creator and owner of IFunny are FunCorp, which develops entertainment services and develops the FunTech industry. It was registered in 2004 in Cyprus, although students from Penza founded it. The young team was producing funny apps, but no project was as popular as IFunny.

This community of memes and funny pictures appeared in 2011 – a year after the similar iOS application IdaPrikol. The Russian-language version became very popular in Russia and the CIS countries, so the developers decided to repeat their success in the North American market. Unlike AyDaPrikol, IFunny is designed for English-speaking users and, in 5 years, was able to become a full-fledged social media.

Meaning and History

IFunny Logo History

The service for viewing entertainment content was initially available in iOS and Android applications that could be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play. Then the web version began to catch up with them, which also gradually gained popularity. Residents of the United States actively posted, viewed, and commented on funny pictures. Of course, they marked the memes they liked using emoticons – a similar system of likes operated in AyDaPrikol.

This explains why IFunny’s logos have always featured a large smiley face. Its appearance changed periodically, and the changes went from complex to simple. This trend was traced at all levels – from the disappearance of the gradient to the background adaptation.

What is IFunny?

IFunny is an entertainment website and app where users share memes. The brand is owned by FunCorp, a company legally registered in Cyprus but with Russian roots, as it was created by students from Penza. Essentially, IFunny is an English-language social network for fans of humorous images, GIFs, and videos. It has faced several controversies due to extremist content involving threats toward various individuals.

2011 – 2012

When the app first appeared, it had a visually heavy logo. The designers combined two dark elements: a yellow-orange smiley with holes instead of eyes and a mouth, and a square with rounded corners and a gray checkered pattern. The edges were black because the vignetting effect was very popular at the time. The background’s specular shine, the gradient, and the reflection of the smiley added dimension to the picture.

In 2012, the developers at FunCorp updated the IFunny logo for the first time. It became lighter by changing the color palette. Simultaneously, the smile gained a friendly look thanks to the new shape of the eyes and mouth. The specular reflection disappeared, as did the cellular background. The square now has full-fledged right angles and colors in the form of gray semi-blurred rays. The vignetting effect was not used, but the edges were still darkened due to the characteristic stripe shape.

2013 – 2014

After another redesign, the creators of IFunny approved a new icon: a large black square with a small smiley in the center. The designers changed the shape and position of the smile again. They also used a moderate amount of orange and made the background a solid color so that the image doesn’t feel as heavy as it used to be.

2014 – 2021

The trend towards simplification continued: in 2014, the gradient finally disappeared. But the smiley has become larger, so it is easy to notice it without any graphical techniques. Simultaneously, colors have lost their brightness and saturation, which makes the logo look faded.

2021 – today

After the redesign, the black square that serves as the background for the smiley has lost its right angles – they have been rounded off to make the drawing look more friendly. For the same purpose, the developers have changed the smile’s shape, expanding it at the bottom. At the same time, the orange color became light, almost yellow. To the right of the icon was the inscription “iFunny” of the same shade. It uses a bold geometric sans-serif typeface that is proportionately balanced. Only “F” is capitalized in the brand name, and all other letters are lowercase. The shape of the “F” makes it seem like there’s more spacing between it and the “u.”

Font and Colors

IFunny Emblem

The owners of IFunny have experimented for a long time with the logo’s graphic design without changing the key elements. Now it consists of a square (background), a circle (head), two mini-ovals (eyes), and an arc (mouth). With the simplest set of geometric shapes, the designers were able to convey the whole essence of the entertainment service. Firstly, the smiling emoticon symbolizes the good mood that users get when viewing funny pictures. Secondly, it is presented in the system of likes on the site and applications.

IFunny Symbol

The IFunny logo does not contain inscriptions. This is a simple two-color drawing. The artists used the shade Golden Tainoi (# FFC449) for the smiley and the square – Black Russian (# 212124).
