Believe it or not, it took me 12 years to realize that the MacRumors logo contains a question mark!

Did I win a prize?! 😅

As a graphic designer I feel somehow sorry for the logo creator. :) I mean: a logo should easily communicate its "message/meaning". If it doesn't, then it means that it needs a tweaking. Or, maybe, it's done on purpose – like an easter egg.

Then, who am I to judge? I took a couple of years to discover the arrow inside the FedEx logo. I guess I had a dumb smirk on my face that day...

Even after you telling us, it took me a while to actually see it

Me, seeing this thread earlier today: Another one of these threads. How long before someone points out the FedEx logo?

Ten minutes later, you made your post :)

I have known this for over a decade, and I feel special. Back then, there were really blurry pictures of leaked products
Taken inside a lift, of course!

I also remember someone thinking that the logo was a mole. Even now, maybe a decade later (edit: wow, that long?!), I can't unsee it.

I have always seen the question mark. Without seeing the question mark, the logo looks like a very awkwardly drawn apple. It's also "ripe" for a professional redesign, should the IP owner happen to be willing to spend time and money on it.

Hey, that's not even an Apple. That's a balding cyclops, with a failed combover, puckering up for a kiss.

Why though?
This logo IS MacRumors.

That's like Ferrari changing the horse in their logo for a Shetland Pony. That horse IS Ferrari
