    Yeah, one of my friends just pointed that out to me about a month ago. It's pretty cool.

    A classic.

    Good logo design is one of the hardest design projects to tackle.
    Although strictly speaking, the FedEx 'logo' is really a logotype...

    The definition is if it's got type, then it's a logotype and other considerations come into play i.e. legibility, fonts, etc

    The Apple logo is a pure logo, a symbol. Much like the Shell logo...

    If you look closely at the Olympic logo, you see that it's really just a big Venn diagram... :D

    Being a Math teacher, I must say this could be my new favorite. Absolutely Brilliant. :D

    Regarding the FedEx logo:
    Too bad their service sucks so much.

    Wonder if that arrow was intentional though... :)

    I noticed the ? in the MacRumors logo about two months after I started visiting the site. I felt really slow when I realized that the logo isn't just a corny apple. :D

    Subliminal messages ------and there are people you don't believe that advertising works.

    Is the arrow in FEDEX an accident -------- NO!

    [graphic omitted]

    Look out! Geek alert!

    In fact, the Olympic logo wouldn't quite be a properly drawn venn diagram with 5 classes, since the intersection of each class should be indicated on the venn diagram (there is no way, for example, to indicate that something falls in both the blue and red classes). One way to draw the five class venn diagram looks like the graphic found near the bottom of this page.

    Well being in the sixth grade we haven't hit the five class Venn Diagrams quite yet. We are still working on Fermat's Last Theorem :D
