Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

Designing a logo or getting a logo designed…none of both is a big task anymore. With so much internet awareness, I think any school going lad can come up with a not-so-bad logo…what say? Tell honestly…. how many of you are capable enough of coming up with a logo which can stand up high and create a noise.

Yes my friends, today once again after Graphic Design Blog ’s last month successful post “25 Logos with hidden messages – Graphic Designing tricks!!” I have compiled some amazingly creative logos. They might lack the general lacy decorations but I am sure you will be thrilled to find the subtle imagination hidden within these masterpieces.

 
 

LDG Logo:

 

Well, this logo proves how creative logo designing companies could be with their own logos. Very artistically the designer has merged the upper arcs of the letter “D” and “G” with the initials of the company name to symbolize “The Guru”.

London Museum:

 

The logo, at first glance, looks like a bunch of colored/transparent shapes on top of each other. But I bring this logo to make you realize that each shape is the shape of what London looked like once. The entire logo represents the evolution of the land of London through time.

   

Concealed Logo:

 

This logo is among one of my favorite logos…brilliant use of negative space makes this logo extraordinary. It has been designed by Ronald J. Cala II for Children’s Book, Editorial. The “Black and White” graphics show the silhouettes of two running children with a dove forming between their clasped hands.

Hope For Children Initiative:

 

For the first glance the logo shows “Africa’s Map” but with a penetrating look you will see the outlined face of a child and a protective elderly figure. In fact I noticed the faces first and then saw the map…strange?

   

8 fish Logo:

 

I am sure, at the first glance you can’t figure out the 8 fish instantly or maybe I am being a little dumb ;) The designer, very creatively, uses the negative space and monotones to show 8 fish in one logo.

15 Rose Ave:

 

This logo is used by a chain of hotel/hostel/suites but the way “5” & “R” have worked together makes it exceptional. This merging and beautiful color combination is adding a subtle vintage feel to the logo.

   

Minimum:

 

This wavy logo looks like "a queue of letter ‘U’ but I would like you to give a second look. Designed by Kilment Kalchev, the logo spells the word minimum in an unrecognizing manner. I really enjoyed figuring it out

"B" Logo:

 

Although you might think it is a simple “Symbolic Logo” showing a “Bee” but what makes it more appealing is the portraying of the letter “B” and the real “Bee” through a simple symbol.

   

Milwaukee Brewers Logo (MB):

 

I am sure one cannot miss the letters “m” and “b” in this logo but marking it as a baseball team the logo is a clear picture of a glove clasping the met ball.

The Bison:  

 

This logo clearly proves how letters of a word can be distorted to create a completely different shape to reinforce its meaning while maintaining readability.

   

Academy of Fine Arts:

 

The logo shows merger of the lower case letters "A", "S" and "P". I think the first two letters are quiet easily figured out but "P" being the shortest of the three letters is losing its legibility…what do you think?

Church Logo:

 

Done by Malcolm Grear and Associates, it’s a true masterpiece of simplifying complexity. It appears a simple Cross shape but hidden inside are a dove, a clerical robe, a pulpit with bible, flames, and a fish. Check out how many of these symbols you can find out.

   

Carrefour Logo:

 

Carrefour in French means “crossroads” and the logo shows two opposite arrows inside a diamond shaping the C letter with the negative space between them but let me confess, I never saw the letter “C” until someone pointed it out to me…

London Symphony Orchestra:

 

Although the logo looks like a single flowing line creating three initials L.S.O in air. The harmonious graphic of this logo marks the unbreaking rhythm of an Orchestra.

   

Cattleyard Logo:

 

Being music related business; the creator of this logo has used various graphics of musical instruments to form the overall shape of a cow. In my opinion this logo is the best example of combining the graphical elements to express a company’s name.

Candy Logo:

 

Do you know how many things have been blended in here? A girl’s head, stereotypical image of a candy and the spelling of “Candy” itself is making the logo so appealing.

   

Philadelphia Flyers logo:

 

If you analyze this logo carefully you will find a “double treat” of hidden messages. It may appear as a streaked “P” but I see a puck with wings and a hidden hockey stick emerging from the centre circle in the logo. Do you see it now?

Modern Nerd:

 

The special features of this logo is it’s way to spell the term “Modern Nerd” and then using the symbolic shapes of hair, glasses and tie to portray the stereotypical geek/nerd image.

   

Peace:

 

This logo has been designed by Felix Sockwell showing a child’s figure face integrated with a flight of a dove. I am not aware which company uses this logo but will really appreciate if any of you know more about this logo…so do share.

5.10 Logo:

 

Five-Ten is a famous family-owned company dedicated to make the best outdoor sports footwear available. When seen in upside position the logo shows a very clever blend of the numeric’s of 5 and10.

   

Newman Logo:

 

I would add my personal favorite, the reversible Newman logo. This logo is the best example of simple but clever logo…what say?

Mamouth Logo:

 

This logo is for a French children clothing store. Although there’s two "m" in French for the word "mammouth" but the designer has played well to make the mammoth face with the single alphabet.

   

Society 27:

 

The good thing about this logo is that it shows the same when viewed in an upside down position. The abstract use of "quotes" and number "7" show the number 27 clearly.

Hammer Logo :

 

This logo is a creative example of utilising the negative space to make your logo leave a lasting impression. The integration of the letter "H" with the hammer is outstanding and a little difficult to find at first glance.

   

Baskin Robins Logo:

 

There is the Baskin Robins new logo, in where the BR also creates the number 31 for how many flavors they have. I found it very clever.

Treacy Shoes:

 

This logo is the cutest example of hidden logos. The hidden shoe packed between the company initials conveys the company message in a very stylish and interesting way. I simply loved it:)

   

Rehabilitation of Hospital:

 

This logo is a simple symbol but a complex and a sacred message. The globally renowned cross symbol represents help and medical attention while the steps reflect on the steps taken back to normal life.

Schizophrenic Logo:

 

Actually this term is used for a medical disorder that often depicts split personalities. Therefore the logo depicts a happy and sad face both at the same time. I loved the simplicity and multi purpose of this logo.

   

Nicholson Logo:

 

Honestly speaking…I don’t know much about this logo but found it amazingly creative to show the letter “N”I will really appreciate if any of you could tell about the company this logo belongs to so I can give the real credit.

To Beat or Not to Beat

 

The logoshows a simple "question mark" but if you watch it closely you will notice it is a belt turned into a question mark pointing the old-fashioned parenting methods. The logo asks if we should "beat or not to beat" a child

   

Well, I hope once again GDB has succeeded in bringing a worthy list of hidden logos for you all. Main aim of compiling these artworks is to appreciate the creative instincts of the intelligent graphic designers and tell everyone how their work makes difference to the world.

Don’t forget to share which of these logos had a real hidden message which you never noticed before. I would love to see more such logos…so, don’t stop sharing and try to make this post as successful as the earlier one ;)

    The LSO logo also looks like a conductor – one arm waving his baton and the other directing.

    Everyone always seems to miss the conductor in the LSO logo… It’s been on so many blogs and every time there is a comment about the conductor yet still no one mentions it.

    Also I have seen the Modern Nerd logo EVERYWHERE… It’s got so much hype, even though I don’t have a use for it or $1,500, I want to buy it.

    “Actually this term is used for a medical disorder that often depicts split personalities.”

    Schizophrenia is NOT multiple personality disorder or dissociative identity disorder. That’s a common misconception. Please don’t spread false information. Thanks.

    some excellent uses of negative space. I’ve always loved the LSO one, never notices the baton until now. nice.

    Oh, and schizophrenic is nothing to do w/ split personalities; its about abnormalities in the way reality is perceived. It’s a common misconception. Uncle Wikipedia will clear it up.

    Nice collection.

    Please don’t perpetuate the myth that schizophrenia refers to split personalities. Those 2 conditions are real but unrelated.

    The “Modern Nerd” logo, not only spells modern out in a cool way, it does so while disguising the word “nerd” in it, by leaving the D and N open towards the bottom of the letters

    Hi Folks…..thanks to all who stopped by to share their views over this bunch of logos.

     

    @ FB-EYE…you mentioned the "Hartford Whalers logo" to be here on the list. I would like you to check the Prelude of this post
    (25 Logos with Hidden Messages) where I already ahve the Whalers Logo alongwith many other clever logos.

     

    @ DMK, CF, Stefanie….I am sorry if i mentioned wrong details about "Schizophrenia" but at couple of places I found the same facts. I will really apprecaiate if any of you send the correct details about this disorder so I replace the content….Thnks.

     

    @ Aaron and Brian Cassidy….I read that LSO logo shows the conductor but didi not mention it because I think it’s not too evident. Don’t you think so?

     

    @ James Cready…hey dude, why did you say that "Nicholson" logo belongs to Delicious? It certainly does not belong there and I dont have much details about it other than that I discovered it on LogoLounge.com

     

    @ The Boss, Dr John and Orpicpixel…thanks a lot for appreciating the collection.

    I have to say, i noticed most of them. I used to silk-screen t-shirts, etc. for peoples businesses, clubs, etc. so i have seen many, many, logos. I do like the one with the children and the hidden dove, i love images like that, as well as the peace logo and the Hope for children logo. the negative space thing, to me, is really cool:)

    Great stuff my friend, I love the old Brewers logo. My brother bought that hat when we were younger because he also liked that the “M” and “B” are connected to form a glove and ball. Thx for sharing and keep up the good work!!!

    Awesome collection of logos! In my opinion, all logos should have a least some level of a hidden meaning in them. These all do this in a pretty masterful way.

    I agree, the Newman logo is genius.

    I’ve always been a fan of New Zealand Post’s logo – as well as being an envelope, they also manage to incorporate NZ into it (New Zealand abbreviated).

    This is a great compilation! You should also check out the use of negative space in the logo for the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium:

    The logo is in the upper left, and you really need to see a larger version of it to appreciate how everything was incorporated.

    The white in the peace logo not only shows a dove but what appears to be a compassionate female image. With the different colors of the two individuals, i wonder if the intent was to show racial harmony.

    Charlie

    I think the conductor in the LSO logo is very apparent. I noticed it instantly. You say you knew about it but didn’t mention it because you didn’t think it was that evident. Isn’t that the best time to bring it to someone’s attention? If it was evident, what would be the use of pointing it out?

    In any case, I enjoy your posts about great logos. I hope you are currently working on Part 3.

    Hi ! I love these designs with hidden messages. In reference to the London Symphony Orchestra, in my opinion, it also represents a ‘Chef d’Orchestre’ (a ‘Conductor’ in the UK or a ‘Leader’ in the USA) moving his/her arms while directing the orchestra.

    Great job overall and

    It is perfectly evident at first glance that the London Symphony Orchestra is a conductor’s head and two arms, one of which–the right–is holding a baton, that happens to contain the LSO in its flowing design if one looks closely. I think, though I may be wrong, that conducting is like using chopsticks, always done with the baton in the right hand.

    I think it’s funny that you said you think that no one could miss the MB in the Milwaukee Brewers’ logo, but I have never noticed that before–I am pretty sure it is the hidden part, and the glove is what is supposed to be immediately visible.

    You should take a look at the Banque Laurentienne logo too. It’s some sort of tree to convey the feeling your money will grow. At the same time, the branches are arrows that point the top of the ladder, sort of saying you’ll be at the top and finally the middle part points to the top meaning you won’t lose it.

    It might be nice to mention that the “church logo” was made for one specific denomination – the Presbyterian Church (USA). Along with that, you should show the complete logo, which includes the denomination’s name in the surrounding circle. A color version would be nice. The other logos get this sort of detail; I think the PC(USA) should, too.

    Although it’s not as well known as some of the logos in your hidden logos series, I’d like give some props to the logo for the company that I work at, the Garvey Group. It’s a printing company, and their logo consists of two G’s that form a printing registration mark.

    I think you missed a trick with the logo for the Academy of Fine Arts, I can see the ASP you refer to but I also see (from top to bottom) the letter A that you see, then written sideways is an R, then the S, then instead of a P I see a sideways T, spelling ARTS.

    The 8 Fish logo is a knock off !

    This concept comes from MC Escher and has already been applied to logo design by Ivan Chermayeff a very long time ago.

    The LSO logo is in the shape of a conductor. That’s what’s cool. It has nothing to do with the “unbreaking rhythm of the orchestra.” The “right hand” (on our left) is a baton, the “left hand” (on our right) is his arm. Awesome logo.

    in Mexico, subway is called “Metro”… now you understand??

    also, there’s a campaing with the phrase “TQM” (the M is the subway’s logo)…
    TQM means “Te Quiero Mucho” (I love you)… but can also be used as “Te Quiero, Metro” (I love you subway)…

    Hi there.
    Great collection!
    A friend of mine (also a graphic designer) sent me your link after an e-amil I sent him when I was too surprised to ‘detect’ the bear in Tobleron’s logo…
    Now I know there are more logos like this one out there.
    I’ve made one, too :-)
    I don’t create often logos, I mostly make posters (when not designing school bags, that’s my ‘actual’ job…). I also like to give them ‘a twist’, to have something hidden within.
    How do you like my G-fish logo? I made this one for a friend’s aquaculture-salmon-farming company here in Greece.

    How about ambigram logos? I like those very much. I found out about them as aresult of seign the ‘Illuminati’ movie and the impossible logos created for it.

    Well I guess I missused your hospitality, after all this isn’t actually a comment, more kind of an e-amil, haha…sorry about that.

    Cheers Paco

    I couldn’t help but notice a common mistake regarding the schizophrenia ad. Schizophrenia is often mistaken for Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. Schizophrenia is actually hallucinations that can be visual or audio, and while a person may hear suggestions from these voices, they do not themselves have alternate personalities like people with DID do.

  1. TC On December 25th, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    Some of these logos, and those in the previous article, aren’t particularly special in my opinion. The Nicholson logo, for example, is nothing special really. Some were good but really would be only on a par of what you’d expect any logo designer to be able to come up with. My personal favourite however is one for Shark Energy drink.

    Academy of Fine Arts:

    “The logo shows merger of the lower case letters “A”, “S” and “P”. I think the first two letters are quiet easily figured out but “P” being the shortest of the three letters is losing its legibility…what do you think?”

    Didn’t bother to read through all the responses. But if you haven’t seen the Logo for Tostito Chips before make sure to check it out. It shows 2 people eating chips with a bowl of chips in the middle of them. The 2 people are the T’s and the I is the bowl of chips on a stand. I think its brilliant.

    Thank you, this and your previous ’25′ have given me an insight into how the designer was thinking and selling their design to their customer but it is more important that the general public connect with the logo.

    The ‘LSO’ is a world-renowned orchestra – their logo had to include the leters ‘LSO’. The design is brilliant, simple, modern, evocative, works in print and and in modern media. With foreknowledge that it applies to music I saw the path of a condutor’s baton in the air just before I saw the letters ‘LSO’. Like the mis-reference to schizophrenia, the baton would seldom make this pattern but the general public’s perception is more important than satisfying the directors, fans and experts. If others see the righthand or head of the conductor or even the Thames all the better.

    How about the worst/failed logos? British Telecom dropped their 1980s logo (..L) because it attracted slogans that reflected their dire service. IBM changed from thirteen stripes to eight – maybe a prediction of their subsequent ‘downsizing’?

    Alan (UK) – Joe Public, not a graphic designer.

    First off, I want to start out by saying that this if a very impressive list, and that I loved looking through and seeing all the clever things hidden in these logos! I liked both pages a lot, and I hope you can continue to publish more of these fun hidden logo posts.

    The other thing I wanted to comment about it’s the schizophrenia logo. Is a common misconception that schizophrenia is characterized by split personality, but that’s actually not what schizophrenia is. It’s actually characterized by hallucinations, such as seeing things, hearing voices, and excessive paranoia. These things often lead to a mix of aggressive emotions, but it doesn’t really include split personality, especially not in the same way as bipolar disorder our multi personality disorder.

    They all are very imaginative and carefully thought out. One of my favourites in the badge of the 7¼” gauge Society (a miniature railway group in the UK) whose badge is a combination of two numbers 4, one inverted and offset so the slope of the front of the numbers is one straight line. The ’7′ is the combination of the horizontal of the inverted ’4′ and the down stroke is the line through both front slopes. The quarter is the upright of the inverted number and the lower number with the common angled line as the divider.The two horizontal strokes of the numbers are matched with one in the centre, effectively the tops of the two numbers, and the three show track sleepers.

    I write a comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on
    a website or I have something to add to the discussion. Usually it’s triggered by the passion displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post 30 more Hidden logos to treat your eyes -The Sequel!!

    The “LSO” for the London Symphony Orchestra looks like a conductor to me, the baton to the left, the head and the expressive curved arm to the right.
