“What’s in a name”, the famous author William Shakespeare asked. What is in a name? That’s a good question. In some cases, there is more meaning within a name than you might realize. The same can be said about a company’s logo. At first glance, most logos are nothing more than an attempt to visually please an audience. But there are often hidden meanings inside logos. This is a list of 15 companies that created intentional hidden messages within their logos. Some you may already know about. Others, you may have missed. This slideshow will make you look at logos in a different light from now on.
The point (pun intended) of Pinterest is to “pin” photos to a social media board. These photos can be shared with your friends and family members. You can “pin” all sorts of things including food, travel destinations, etc. Take a look at that logo and see if you can decipher the hidden message. You’ll have to look hard. Now look at the ‘P’. Notice something? That’s right, it’s an intentional drawing of a pin.
