I’m a big fan of subliminal messages or hidden messages in advertisements and logos. I enjoy the creativity and the art behind creating a memorable logo. Plus I think it’s fun to try to spot the hidden messages with in the advertisement.
In fact, I may be a little biased but my favorite logo with a hidden message is from my college alum, Washington State University. At first glance the logo looks like our mascot the Cougar, but with a little more time you can begin to see that it also spells out W. S. U. in the shape of a Cougar head. Now I think that is pretty cool!
In light of my enjoyment of subliminal messages in logos I found a very entertaining article recently published from Business Insider titled, “15 Corporate Logos that Contain Subliminal Messages”. After reading this article I will never look at logos the same again.
