Logos play a crucial role in marketing a business. It serves as a company’s graphical representation and so, when done right, it draws people to the services or products offered by the brand. It becomes an icon – a memorable visual symbol of a company.
Sometimes though, designers get a little sneaky and try to throw in certain words and symbols to give greater meaning to company logos. Most of us may not notice this but it is intentionally and artistically done, with consent from the company for the most part.
Suffice it to say that they’re actually pretty fascinating. Check out the photos below and see for yourself:

Yes, that's a biker right there in the logo.

Most of us probably thought it was nothing but a smile. Well, guess what – the arrow points from A to Z which means you'll find everything in this online shopping site.

Known for their 31 different flavors, Basin Robbins brilliantly managed to include the number in their logo.
The logo is a stylized version of the famous The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.
We are told that the logo is of two guys shaking hands, one represents the car dealer and the other, the customer.
Of course, the P in Pinterest symbolizes a pin.
That's your butt right there, buddy!

The letters N and W combined into one.
