Don’t we all love well designed logos! But logos with hidden messages are loved even more! The idea of discovering interesting messages hidden in a mask of creativity has always excited designers and art lovers. Remember the WOW moment when you discovered the FedEx logo’s hidden arrow? That’s the kind of strong impact that a successful logo design must invoke.
Newbie designers are often asked to study hidden messages in a logo design as these define the true objective of a logo design – integrating business philosophy in a limited space in the most simple, memorable, yet creative manner possible. Logo design surely isn’t an easy profession!
While searching for inspiration, our logo designers came across several interesting logo designs with creative messages. Given below is a compilation of some of the best logo designs with hidden messages. We call them design masterpieces. What do you think?
Ever looked closely at the Baskin-Robbins logo design? Do you see the hidden, “31” number creatively placed between, “B” and “R”?

The company highlighted the unique feature of 31 different flavors for 31 days of the month in its logo design. That’s what we call smart creativity!
Can you find the letter “S” in the Sun Microsystems logo? No…even we could not! The company has a creative ambigram that spells the word “SUN” without the letter “s”.
