Ecomodder Logo

Oh dear God - I just saw the light.

All this time I was thinking the Ecomodder logo was a really weird looking E.

I just finally saw the green wrench end! This is only after seeing the little wrench-head turtle logo!

Weird what things you do and don't see in negative space.

Did you notice that the FexEX logo has a big arrow between the E and the x? You will now!

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......... and i ship FedE->x packages every day at work.

with the Eco logo, i knew there was something strange about it, but it never donned on me until you posted it. In a way it feels like i allways new it was there (unlike the FedE->X logo.)

the one i HATE is the Goodwill logo. i hate it because it's so obvious that my brain argues with itself over which way to see it.

Do you see the 2 things? (eg: EX and -> in FedEx)

Y'all folks is SLOW... I've seen it both ways since about 15 seconds after my first visit. Then again, my brain takes stuff like that and does this weird "phasing" thing where it'll seemingly "pop" or "highlight" one color and then another in succession. Sometimes it's VERY ANNOYING.

I guess it becomes a M, then a 3, and finally a W if you roll it through 360 degrees.
