This is not art (not in the same sense that you're using here).  A
logo is not art in the sense of making people think.  Logos are
identities first, and if there's thinking involved later (like the
fedex arrow) then that's a cute bonus but far from the main goal --
and that makes it very different from art.

Random two links on logo design:


Both mention "simple" as an important requirement.

(They also have a bunch of additional features that are needed for
making a good logo, which the "r" doesn't have.)
