If you've ever wondered how famous corporate logos were made, check out the The Origin Of Famous Logos to see that even the best graphic designers, art directors and copywriters need a little inspiration from others.

Just like the famous quote by Pablo Picasso, "Good artists copy. Great artist steal," great artist take inspiration from the images that surround them to create something new. But did large corporations get their inspiration from Pokemon, Sonic the Hedgehog and Star Wars? This is quite possible judging from this graph that explains the true and maybe secret origin of a few very famous corporate logos. Shave Sonic the Hedgehog with a razor and you get the Drupal logo, and cut off the peace sign and you will get the very famous Mercedes-Benz logo.
