Logos with Hidden Meaning

For the month of August, a series of guest posters will be filling in on DWL with daily posts. Today’s posts come to you from Yael Miller of Miller Creative. For more from Yael, be sure to  follow her on Twitter. Enjoy!

There’s something so fascinating about a design that has some kind of hidden detail that makes all the difference and leaves you with this really satisfied feeling. We all know about the FedEx hidden-arrow logo, so I’ve collected some lesser-known logos from different designers that I know of on Dribble, that contain some type of hidden element or dual meaning. Which one is your favorite?
