Ever notice the hidden arrow in the FedEx logo?
Hint: Its between the 'E' and the 'x'

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

Funny. All I see is one Mickey Mouse standing in front of and to the side of another....

And Blue - you're staying up later and later....

Ah, and here I thought maybe you'd strayed over to our side of the ocean. Oh well, no biggie.

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

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.
