Top 10 logos with hidden meaning.

In this 21st century we all struggling to be branded. Being  a branded human being or using branded things is termed classy today. However to sail our boats we need to participate in these races. Every brand has it’s own unique way of representation in forms of Logo’s. It’s like an art, we can’t run away from it. We crave for it. Most Logo’s have deeper , and, dare we say, hidden meanings behind them.

Domino’s:

It all started from a mainstream politician’s book of campaign speeches. Tom Monaghan,an Orphan managed $900 and bought a tiny pizza cafe called DomiNicK’s in Michigan in 1960. Post five years two more locations were established. Monaghan wanted to name those new places by his name but unfortunately the previous owner refused. The name Domino’s was suggested by a delivery person and the rest is pizza history. The three dots on the domino on the pizza chain’s logo represent the three original Domino’s locations.
Monaghan decided to add dots to the Domino in the logo whenever a new location was established. It would have been the messiest logo in the branding history containing approximately 12k dots representing locations worldwide. Even after much changes the three dots remain the same

Amazon:

The best online website where you can buy dog food, headphones, a pillow with a picture of topless David Beckham on it all the same time and have it delivered to your home within two days or less.
There’s nothing that Amazon doesn’t sells and their logo is a shear reflection of it.
Even in this new evolving stylist world Amazon has not changed their logo which probably represents”I’m happy I don’t have to leave my house ever again to buy whatever I need!”And the curved line under Amazon depicts that they sell everything right from the alphabet A-Z.

Toyota:

While buying a new Corolla or while driving I am sure no would have thought about the Logo. All we do care is comfort mileage and other specifications. Toyota has been at top of it’s game and it’s the largest auto manufacturer.
According to Toyota, the three ellipses symbolize ” the unification of the hearts of Toyota Products” and the background is for the Brand’s  “technological advancement and the boundless opportunities ahead”. So it’s surely not a Halo.

Baskin Robbins:

Baskin Robbins is the  reason why we believe that Ice cream is not a food item but a feeling.
In 1953 Ogilvy & Mather wanted to highlight that the company had an astonishing number of ice cream flavors.
Now that they have so many flavors but back then around six decades before they had 31 flavors and which is quiet evident in the Logo.
If you carefully look at “B” & “R” the alphabet B represent 3 and R represent 1 which represents 31 flavors of the company

BMW:

To have a BMW car is in everyone’s bucket list for sure. Have you ever wondered what does it’s logo represent?
BMW was a brand without it’s logo in 1917. It was a joint company with a company called Rapp Motors. The logo is basically an homage to Rapp’s old logo but, instead of a black horse in the middle, BMW used blue-and-white, the national colors of Bavaria.
In 1927 the logo appeared on the products we are still Loving it. Besides few minor changes it’s been exactly same for about 100 long years.

Tesla:

An electric car is everybody’s wish around the world as increasing Global Warming is a massive World Issue. Elon Musk   have changed out point views towards electronic vehicles.
There were always rumors about the Logo ‘T’. Few said it was named after an electrical engineer, physicist and a mad scientist Nikola Tesla. Few said it’s about the Tesla coil. But Musk once replied to a fan on Twitter about it which said “Similar to Space X, the T is like a cross section of an electric motor, just as the X is like a rocket trajectory”. With the production of cost reliable Model 3 the Tesla logo is again in lamplight.e

Nike:

Every sport person’s first choice would always be Nike for the sport material of their respective sport. Nike has provided not sport friendly items but also sneakers and all kinds of comfort materials for everybody.
Phil Knight, the founder of Nike paid $35 for a student in Portland University, during the early days of the brand.
According to the designer the big fat check mark( as Knight doubled it) represented the speed of sound. Knight, however, really wasn’t feeling the new iconography- he told CBS he was all “Okay that’s the best we can do, let’s go” at the time. In short, one of the most iconic logos of all-time survived only because the corporate dude was too busy and rushed to complain.
Hell, it wasn’t until 1995 that Nike actually registered the trademark  for the Swoosh, and it became the corporate identify for the brand.

Mercedes Benz:

The Mercedes is always termed as the most luxurious of it’s kind. Or if we’re trying to be fancy, it carries a lot of cachet.
They never started with a logo, but rather a star drawn on a postcard sent by Gottlieb Daimler to his wife in the 1870’s to represent the location of his house and how light will “shine over his factory and bring prosperity.” The three points  in the star represent complete domination of land,sea , and air. It makes total sense now why there are more Mercedes-Benz Deceptions than Autobots.

Disney:

Thanks to Disney for making our childhood so special. Mickey Mouse and lot’s other fairy tales of Disney were World famous which helped the company financially. There are Disney theme Parks all over the Globe.
It made us believe that a wish surely comes true when you see a shooting star. In 1984  Michael Eisner took over as a CEO and decided to turn the studio around creatively and financially after a long dull phase following Walt Disney’s Death. As the castles of the theme park helped the company economically, the castles became the logo of Disney

MGM:

I hope you all remember the loud roar of the Lion before the beginning of ‘The Tom And Jerry Show’. It is the logo of MGM and it was found in 1924. Marcos Loew, founder of the Loews movie theater chain, acquired Metro Pictures with MGM.
Even after the merge the logo remained the same. Leo’s roar, however, is a mix of several different large jungle cats to enhance the sound.
Essentially, you’re watching a dead animal lip-sync every time you see an MGM movie. Ah, the magic of Cinema.
