Logos with a Hidden Meaning

FedEx
The FedEx logo, though quite simple has a powerful meaning hidden in it.
If you look closely at the red Ex in the logo, you’ll notice that the white space between E and x is an arrow pointing towards the right.
This right or forward arrow highlights moving forwards towards the future.

Amazon
The arrow in Amazon’s logo, pointing from a to z.
The real reason for the  arrow is to show that all things from a-z are present for retail at Amazon.
The arrow also represents a smiling face.

Re: Logos with a Hidden Meaning


The + sign not being filled in to signify that "We'll do you proud" is a hollow promise?

Re: Logos with a Hidden Meaning

the clan was real and in some backwards Hicksville areas in the swamplands of the deep south still exists to a certain extent
the logo thing was something from a film (Harley Davidson and the Marlboro man) and possibly some other movies referenced it as well, true or myth doesn't really matter there sales nosedived massively and it coincided with the revelations about them using fibreglass in there filters which caused many people to swap brands overnight ...
