    Company Logos and their meanings

    Found this interesting article on the meaning behind the logos of some well known brands. The vaio and amazon one really surprised me. Because i didnt figure there was so much thought that went into it.

    Finally the truth comes out! Lol.

    I always got the smiley face image from the Amazon logo. That's clever for them to include the "a to z" image in there as well. Very nice.

    The hidden arrow in FedEx is so cool! Now I won't be able to look at the logo without being drawn to the arrow.

    thats a really interesting site, white. I'm always kinda curious about what ad agencies really consider an improvement logo-wise and how they justify these often so drastic changes in brand communication!

    I read somewhere that the company had their nike logo created by a design student for like 60 bucks back in the days when it was still a small firm. Imagine how mad the student mustve been after seeing the company grow so large and not receiving any further payment for the use of the logo.

    True story, was sold for $35, but she was given some shares in Nike which was never cashed in and are worth around half a million today. So not all that bad for a little swoosh the designer never liked.

    Does anyone remember the crazy explanations the group behind the current Pepsi logo gave as to its inspiration and meaning?

    So insane:
