Logo design can be a complicated business. Even the most apparently simple symbols can go through multiple transformations during the design process, and a dodgy line here or off-angle there will have kept a graphic designer up at night. And it seems not even Elon Musk is immune to the agony of chasing logo perfection.

Musk recently took to his favourite social media platform to offer some insight into the creation of two of his companies' most well known logos. And it turns out one has a secret message, while the other has undergone many subtle tweaks over the years. (Looking for inspiration? Check out our roundup of the best logos of all time.)
