I’m doing a research on subliminal messages and symbols provided by the advertising industry while working in developing some urban stories.
Iâ€™ve noticed that there are few urban stories on the local market and Iâ€™m sure that people need them.
Some interesting examples for me were provided by the anti-globalization movement: very subtle, very intelligent, short stories with a certain aura of mystery and conspiracy.
This were some ingredients in creating great urban legends:
Here is the World Economic Forum logo.
At a first glance you’ll probably see just a simple logo – maybe in the middle is a half moon or the sun. The urban legend started states that the semi-circle line crossing the “O” letter forms the figure 6.
In the same area, another legend was started at the G8 2005 forum (see the second logo to the left🙂 ).
They say that in the middle, the white spaces hide the occult symbol of the horned owl. With a little imagination you can see the head and body of the owl.
Other fun stuff is available out there on the Internet but I have to carry on with my study so you’ll have to digg it yourself 😉
