Infographic: 40 Brand Logos With Hidden Messages

We often take logos for granted, forgetting the endless hours that went into their creation. You may think of them as just some image a marketing company created, but in fact many of the most successful logos have “hidden imagery” meant to reinforce their brand’s product or main message. This works on an almost subconscious, subliminal level, and once you see them you’ll understand the genius that went into their creation. Below is a cool infographic outlining 40 of the top brands that use hidden imagery in their logos.

Maybe the title doesn’t sound that appealing, but you have to watch this video. It’s a fascinating piece by Laurin Döpfner, where he sands down various objects 0.5mm at a time and takes a picture, stitching them together into fascinating footage. There’s really not much more to it than that, so if you have 2 minutes to spare, check it out.

Video: Instant Ice

The video above shows a pretty dramatic example of supercooling at work. This is what happens when you cool water below its freezing point, but the water lacks any nucleation sites that are necessary to seed ice crystals. In other words, for water to turn to ice, it requires the presence of solid particles around which to start forming crystals. If the water is pure enough, you can take it down to −48.3 °C (−55 °F) while still in liquid form. But as soon as you pour it out onto something solid, the above happens.

Science.
