How the Starbucks Logo got less naughty...






It is a twin tailed siren after all.

Robert i really logos like this, that show a bit about what the company or brand is about. Those from apple and others are fine - but they don't give a hint about the company, product, or service. I will admit it took me a while to see the arrow in the fed ex logo.

Of course, the FedEx logo (hidden arrow) and Big Ten (when 11 teams) were interesting, too...
