Yep, I did just use that cliché title.
As I promised, this one’s about logos and our fascination with those pesky little images that literally surround us in hundreds but we don’t even know what they signify.
I recently read this somewhere on the Internet that McDonalds was almost gonna change their famous M logo but a psychologist managed to convince them to keep it because it resembles mammary glands (Boobies) which are a source of nutrition and that activates our primal instincts so as to make us relate McDonalds with nutrition which is totally ridiculous considering their current reference to obesity. BUT as Lincoln once said “It’s true if it’s on the internet” I’m pretty sure it’s true.
(I know it’s true, just added that for the comic effect STFU It’s my blog)
And that’s just one single logo. There are a million other out there. For example the Amazon logo with two hidden meanings to it. Google it yourself, I’m not your mistress.
But why are these meanings HIDDEN? I mean, it’s fine for McDonalds cause it’s anyways an unconscious effect but what about the Amazon logo? I wouldn’t’ve (Neologism) noticed the A-Z thing unless I analysed the logo and although this blog clearly shows my lack of “life” but I’m still not SO jobless that I analyse logos.
APART FROM THAT, aren’t logos basically just a mask? I know this sounds edgy (2edgy4Me, right ;)) but companies don’t care about you. Let’s be honest. It’s all just money, and that’s totally fine because they have no obligation to care about you. But it’s not ethical to dupe customers either. Companies have no obligation towards their customers but they do owe a great deal to the environment and they SHOULD take care of it and repair the damages they cause.
This post was total trash….but I’m still not sure how to do this so I can post it (EXCUSES, I run that shit).
