Logos serve as a distinct visual signature for people to easily recognise an organisation. Glancing at a logo can immediately fill your mind with images and feelings associated with products, companies and their ideals and values. Yet logos can also have layers of meaning that we are often unaware of. For example, what I thought looked like a yellow smiling face underneath the first part of the words “amazon.com” is really an arrow that signifies the broad range of retail items available, from A to Z.
