That is sad cause I read CNP and not CPN. The letter order is not correct to what the logo is saying.
Best logo in the world for me gotta be Nike, the logo does not even represent the word but everyone knows it is nike just seeing the swoosh. And probably the cheapest, simplest and best logo there is.

Nike is so cool because of it's simplicity, but we know it's Nike because of global position of the company and it's marketing not because it visually describes "Nike" as the goddess .
Apple is there at the top aswell...

The N stand between the C and the P that why everyone who see if for the first time will still see CNP. They need switch the N and the P it would be more correct.
I think Nike the best cause Nike is also the very first original of the company. Apple logo have been change several times. First version was so bad, that it was a illustration than a logo.

The OGC is the £14,000 logo designed for the uk Office of Government Commerce and everybody knows about the £400,000 london 2012 logo..
Apparently it costs lots of money to design logos with hidden meanings that only the ones who picked the logo cannot see.

wow! £14,000 for the OGC?!
clever and naughty.LOGOWORX
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you don't have; rather remember that what you have now was once among the things you only hoped for.

This big money are from design pitches it's very hard to get into that group unless your design firm is famous. The only select the most known companies to enter. Also cause of they want it in a contest form they need to make the prices high to attract them to enter otherwise if they money is very little they could earn more when they just work for their normal clients.
Also their are some pitches there are bit unfair like the dutch goverment paid 60.000 euro for a logo which they already have and paid Studio Dunbar 2nd time for the same logo.

PEPSI logo is the best - it's controversial. The company knows how to get attention even for the worst

Someone showed that to me once, i think it was from david carsons website. Anyway my point is that with a brand such as the only oil company in a whole country you know right away what the letters are by the symbol. The letters of that logo form an abstract shape at first so your associating the shape with the brand not the actual letters. Your example of nike and the swoosh proves my point. You dont need to read out nike (to know the brand) just see the swoosh to know what brand your looking at. So in the case with the commie oil company you dont need to read the letters to know what you talking about. I think its a cool logo but for sure not the best.

Thanks for starting the post. I don't think it's the best logo in the world but I did enjoy seeing the OGC posted and the original logo for Apple.

This is briliant!
Guys, I didn't say this is the best logo- I said it's "One"of the best, and that's my opinion.
