Codes and copyrights

There is nothing random about trademarks. Behind each trademark lies a well-considered move. Symbols are used to create an analogical correspondence between two elements and a concise form of expressing the essence or meaning of a certain object or idea.

Organizations use symbology in trademarks to communicate subtle information, whether through words, ambigrams, religious symbols, or codes.
