Did you know that many famous companies have objects and symbols hidden inside their logos?
This post showcases cool logo designs that cleverly use negative space to convey subliminal messages.

The subliminal messages are any sensory stimuli below an individual’s absolute threshold for conscious perception. Visual stimuli may be quickly flashed before an individual may process them, or flashed and then masked, thereby interrupting the processing.
Introduced in 1897, the concept became controversial as « subliminal messages » in 1957 when marketing practitioners claimed its potential use in persuasion…

Here are some examples of fantastic logos hiding a subliminal message:
