Can You Spot The Secret Messages Hiding In These 15 Iconic Logos?

FedEx

Whether you're looking at a magazine, picking up a latte, or scrolling through social media, you're likely to run into a bunch of corporate logos. But you probably won't pay too much attention to any of them. This might explain why some companies have managed to send you subliminal messages without you even realizing it. We're serious! Take a look at the FedEx logo. You may not have realized it, but between the letters "E" and the "X" there's an arrow. But it's not there just for kicks. It's there to symbolize the efficiency, speed and momentum of FedEx. But there are even more clever hidden ones out there...

Starbucks

Starbucks

Whether you love or hate coffee, everyone knows Starbucks, and it's obviously so popular that the coffee chain can be found practically everywhere and in almost every country. So when you see the green logo, your brain automatically tells you that it's time for some coffee. And that's just the kind of outcome they wanted. The logo, which acts like a siren, is in fact, a 16th-century Norse twin-tailed mermaid, aka a siren, that represents coffee's history and the Seattle seaports, which is where the first Starbucks was founded. Are you craving a latte now?

Wendy's

Wendy's / Twitter

Wendy's knows that the race to create the best fast food burgers can be grueling, but Wendy's beats out other fast food places on social media as one of the best. But besides having an awesome Twitter account, they have a hidden message in their logo that's so clever. While the logo contains what many believed to be founder Dave Thomas' daughter, you'll find that in Wendy's collar, the word "mom" is written. This suggests that their meals are like Mom's home-cooked recipes. Of course, how many moms make square burgers and squirt ketchup in tiny cups? But then again, who could resist a Frosty?

Chick-fil-A

Now we move on the oh-so controversial, fast food chicken place, Chik-fil-A. Until the founder made a comment about same-sex marriage that had customers bailing on the restaurant, Chik-fil-A was famous for their cross-cut fries and delicious chicken sandwiches. But they seemingly bounced back from the controversy because of their delicious sandwiches. But if you look at their logo, you'll notice a chicken trying to hide in the letter "C." The Chik-fil-A founder had actually paid $50 for the creation of that logo, which oddly enough was conceived on the back of a napkin.

McDonald's

Apparently, everyone's lovin' McDs and their golden arches have become a beacon to billions of customers who have been served. In fact, the fast food restaurant has killed it in the fast food competition. Now we know that the "M" is for McDonald's. But in the 1960s, a psychologist and designed consultant named Louis Cheskin stated that the arches are symbolism of a pair of nourishing mammary glands. Okay, so maybe Cheskin overthought that way too much. But just for the sake of it, what do you say we move on from this?
