Flying J Logo question

Recommended Posts

Am I missing something here?

 

Why is the triangular wing part not centered on the J?

If this is supposed to be capable of flight, wouldn't the wing need to be centered?

Sorry, just one of those little things that bother you when you see a logo.

I guess because it's centred in the circle.

 

The only ways to make the wing centred both on the J and in the circle would be:

 

a ) to move the J's upstroke a few degrees to the left -- but then it wouldn't bisect the circle

 

b ) to make the J straight vertical -- but then it wouldn't visually represent a jet taking off.

 

So the design we see probably represents the best way to marry disparate goals.

If you envison that the wings attach to the top (left-most) part of the fuselage then it still kinda works.

If marrying disparate goals leads to a design that offends the eye, maybe one of the goals needs to be changed
