Inverted esoteric and occult symbols are astoundingly widespread in the clothing industry. They are popular with consumers, and promoted by many seemingly non-associated companies. What’s behind this dark symbolic trend? An examination of the meanings, origins and effects of this symbology reveals why we should all take more care with what we wear.  

Symbols are a powerful medium of communication, conveying instantaneous information in an easily accessible way. Every organization – be it governments, religions, schools, hospitals, corporations, etc. – use symbols to represent itself. We are therefore constantly surrounded by symbols and have become accustomed to quickly grasp what they stand for without much thinking. Just think of The Red Cross, McDonald’s, or Starbucks, and you can probably immediately see their logo in your mind’s eye. Branding and repeated exposure to symbols accustoms us to them, and can impact our choices (for instance choosing to go with a reputable brand because of the logo displayed on the product as opposed to a generic product counterpart).

  1. I was recently shopping in Target for my young nephews and it was almost impossible to buy a t-shirt without a huge scull or some seriously demonic symbol on it. Pretty scary really that even young children are being encouraged to want to wear these things.

  2. I have a direct marketing back ground and your article is spot on.

    In the last 40 years the same 5 most recognised brands have not changed world wide. They may jockey for position, but the same companies are still in the Top 5.

    The most recognised brand signatures are still McDonalds and Coca-Cola. Even though Pepsi outsell Coca-Colas from time to time in the US, the Coca-Cola and Coke advertising symbols are the most universally recognised advertising symbols.

    Furthermore, my experience in the sector illustrated that we are subjected to 14,000 advertising symbols per day, of which only 4 can be remembered the end of the day. One guess to which are the MOST remembered advertising symbols are?

    I had to run direct marketing campaign for NGO’s and they struggled to compete with above the line traditional V, Cinema and Billboard and now Instagram)

    The old NAZI Germany propaganda line “the bigger the lie the more people believe in it,and therefore are deceived” still stands to this day.

    Advertising companies strictly adhere to the “the bigger the lie, the more people are deceived”. The advertising agencies simply change the word deception to “people are reached”.

    The Holy Trinity of advertising is:

    Target market
    Segmenting your target market and
    Capturing responses from your customer base

    Why do you think ALL media wants (remember the ego’s: I want .. I want ….. I want) you to use the response mechanisms on your I-phone, tablets and computers via variations of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, blogs etc, and if you’re a professional “LinkedIn.” I was recently refused a job interview as I did NOT have a Linkedin account.

    Advertising companies demand your response and if you don’t respond, you’re a loser/loner/terrorist with something to hide.

    Advertising works, and it works effectively.

  3. Great article, very much worth serious attention. Thanks Angela.
