Some brandings are so powerfully imprinted in your mind, you probably haven’t considered delving deeper into their backgrounds to learn more about them.

Steven Brower from PRINT Magazine, however, has given a handful of iconic logos some thought. As it turns out, the faceless heroes behind a number of them are deemed legends in the creative industry.

For example, graphic designer Milton Glaser, who is most famous for the often replicated ‘I ♥ NY’ logo, also created DC’s 1976 logo, which stuck around until 2005.

View some surprising iterations you might not have known were created by prominent designers, and head over to PRINT Magazine to see more.
