100+ Clever Logos With Hidden Symbolism

Creative Logos With Hidden Messages always appealed to me and I have always seen them as very intriguing and fascinating little work of arts very enjoyable at deciphering their hidden meanings.

The first characteristic of a great and efficient logo is that it can instantly and straight away “grab” viewers attention. A good way to do so is by providing viewers a small challenging puzzle to figure out. When viewers get the hidden message behind the logo, there’s this immediate little satisfaction sensation, and something as fun as this stimulate people to talk and share their investigations and findings.

Even if the first viewer is not able to see anything hidden at first sight, the second person would explain it to him which will make the logo stick into his head for a long time to come.
