The Starbucks logo flaw you've probably never noticed

The Starbucks siren is undeniably one of the most iconic logos of the 21st century. Last year we discovered that our favourite coffee house has been hiding a sneaky secret right under our noses since 2011. And we're still amazed by it today. 

If you haven't spotted it yet, look to the right of the siren's nose and you'll see the shadow of the eye is longer than it is on the left. The detail is tiny, we know, but once you've spotted it, it's a detail you'll never be able to unsee. We had no idea this was part of the otherwise symmetrical Starbucks logo, but it's just one of the iconic design's features that we think makes it one of the best logos ever.
