FedEx logo

Recommended Posts

UPS has always been and always will be king of the parcel shipping industry.

If you don't ship UPS, you're shipping with a second rate company.

Fedex is way better in my opinion. In Canada, if I want to ship outside Canada, UPS won't insure it. Thats it. There isnt an option to insure it. I had to ship something to the Netherlands that was worth a thousand dollars and UPS said if it gets lost they are not responsible. Customer service also blew. So I went to Fedex and I had no problems.

Ooops, how is this about logos?

We were talking about this at work the other day as the FedEx man arrived. I feel really dumb for never noticing it. I'm also the guy that has trouble seeing both the face and the candlesticks...

And I call myself a graphic designer... :rolleyes:

The face and the candlesticks? What logos are you talking about there?

[/dumbquestion]

Good read. I wasn't sure if the arrow was intentional or not. But it still doesn't explain the spoon. :D

i've always wondered about the spoon too... maybe it was the logo designers favorite activity...

FedEx is awesome.........the logo at least.

Also, and this is not from my knowledge base but 'Finding Forrester', I like that BMWs logo is the spinning prop of a airplane........cause thats how they started.

Car logos can be tricky. I got the Saturn one right away. Earthlink has a similar look. Mercury is the stylized wings of Mercury, I think.logo.gif

Mazda is a hidden M.topnav_glo_img_04.gif

I think Mazda's old logo was a hidden M as well. The logo that had was a oval and at the bottom the oval came up and made a circle at the center of the oval. Anybody have any idea what I'm talking about?

oh those tricky mazda's. the RX-7's and RX-8's are pretty decent but the Demio is an absolute piece of garbage.

speaking of which, what about the Chevy logo. im trying to figure out that one.

i know its a bowtie, but whats the connection to driving a corvette coupe? bowtie.gif

spinning prop? i guess you could see it but from what i can see,

actually looks a bit more like it was taken from the Bavarian Flag

since the name of the company is Bayerische Motoren Werke (Bavarian Motor Works)

I always thought it was cool that the arrow points northwest, while completing the N into a W in a much more subtle (and effective) way than Washington designer ever could.

The old Northwest Airlines logo is a good one. It's an N and a W. I say old, but it is still used a bit. They changed to just the triangle in the circle now for whatever reason.

Web page with logo

holy crap. i never noticed the W till now. i had thought it was a cool logo despite because it used the compass point towards the NW...but wow, hidden W

The United Airlines logo always got me when I was a kid.

For the United I see the U in the Blue part. Am I to see anything within the red?

I felt like an idiot when I found out that the Minnesota Wild logo has a bear head in it. I mean it only took me 5 years. My freind didnt know what team it was and asked me whats with the bear head logo and I had no clue what he was talking about. He pointed to it and then I realized the river was also the mouth.
