Ever wondered what company logos mean and whats the significance behind them? Wonder no more!
How many of you have noticed a hidden symbol in the Federal Express logo. Yeah, About the 'arrow' that you can see between the E and the x in this logo. The arrow was introduced to underscore speed and precision, which are part of the positioning of the company.
You might think the arrow does nothing here. But it says that amazon.com has everything from a to z and it also represents the smile brought to the customer's face. Wow, that is quite deep.
Eighty-20 is a small consulting company which does sophisticated financial modeling, as well as some solid database work. All their work is highly quantitative and relies on some serious computational power, and the logo is meant to convey it.
People first guess that 20% of the squares are darkened, but that turns out to be false after counting them. The trick is to view the dark squares as 1's and the light squares as 0's. Then the top line reads 1010000 and the bottom line reads 0010100, which represent 80 and 20 in binary.
Kinda like the surreal green screen of The Matrix, they want us to read stuff in binary
Paul Rand (who designed the iconic IBM logo in 1972) designed this 'eye bee M' logo in 1981. I like that they are quite relaxed about the logo, unlike certain other companies who do not like the logo to be tampered with in any way even for internal promotions
The SUN Microsystems logo is a wonderful example of symmetry and order. It was a brilliant observation that the letters u and n while arranged adjacent to each other look a lot like the letter S in a perpendicular direction. Spectacular.
The above are two magazines from the Readers Digest stable. Again, the attempt to communicate what it is about quite figuratively through the logo catches my attention.
This was a logo created for a puzzle game called Cluenatic. This game involves unravelling four clues. The logo has the letters C, L, U and E arranged as a maze. and from a distance, the logo looks like a key

Looks like a dream filled with all decorative cakes. The Cakeland in Oakland is literally for the sweet addicts. The place which is created to appear as the delicious collection of the tempting cakes all around is actually the artistic work that is articulately done to resemble these amazing collections of delicious cakes. It is simply about the cakes all over- whether the cakes placed on tables, mounted on walls or as hangings from the ceiling, or stacked on top of each other.
These Scott Hove’s cakes are everything one desire for but are not consumable. The good thing about them is that they can last long until the artist or the society wants them to be preserved, unlike the real cakes which are exhaustible. It is mainly because of the material these artificially flavored delicious cakes are made of viz. acrylic, wood and cardboard.
