This fine logo makes much more sense after you’ve read the title. It was pointed out by one of our fans, more specifically user called Briamah. I don’t know whether this is a fictional logo to showcase author’s design skills, or maybe Spartan Golf Club really exists out there in the wild. Either way, it’s beyond cool! What did you spot first? The centurion helmet, or the golfer making his swing? Btw, I’ve added 15 more unpublished optical illusions to our Facebook fan group, so be sure to head there after you’ve finished with today’s post!

Spartan Golf CLub Logo

    Spotted the golfer first, then a few seconds later saw the centurion. Now, when I look at it I see the centurion first. Very fine optical illusion, yes indeed, yes indeed.

  • Greg

    That’s one of the best I’ve seen in a while! It took me a while to see the helmet, but now that I see it it’s really cool.

  • Simon

    I spotted the golf first… didn’t see the helmet until i read the title

  • popesantaxiv

    Oh snap!

    A head with a helmet
    A golfer swinging
    The letter G

    How awesome!

  • DTM1119

    I AM NUMBA 2!!!
    awesomeness

  • t00tall10169

    definitely seen the golfer first

  • tinkerer

    now that’s a real illusion

  • Nikolai Scheel

    This……is……..par!

  • nockgeneer

    Definitely one of the better illusions I’ve seen in the past little while. If you notice, the helmet/swing bar and the little swoosh at the bottom of the player/face make it look a little like an ‘S’ (for Spartans) as well. Awesome.

  • Typeaux

    Definitely saw the golfer and swing motion first. In fact I thought the “illusion” was going to be about the arc — like it appears to be tapered as the sections get thinner, but isn’t. That sort of thing. Once I read your opening line about the title, I stopped and looked again and THEN saw the Grecian soldier!

  • anonymous

    Could be the Amyty Region #5, CT golf club, as the Amity team is the Spartans.

  • randomperson

    my school mascot is the a spartan mabye the golf team can use it for their shirts lol

  • david

    I’d guess Michigan State Spartans, but this logo doesn’t show up on any of their pages

  • cp rules

    did you notice how the person looks like a face to or is it just me?

  • David

    I saw the golf pic first… very cool!

  • DMtisca

    I actually saw a speedometer first. Thay may have been largely to just getting home from work not 5 mins beforehand

  • pinapple

    SOOO SUPER DUPER AWESOME!

  • Jupiter

    Noticed the golf swing first but after a moment saw the Spartan as well. It is really well done.

  • psb

    Saw the golf club first.
    I wonder, though, if I were sitting further away if I’d see the helmet first.

  • OScar

    Golf first

  • kufaz

    spotted the golfer first

  • servilan42

    The golfer…. love the helmet better

  • C.C

    i saw both! but i saw the helmet first

  • dean

    wow! i didnt even realize the helmet until i read it. but that just i me i think…..

  • Loza

    Amazing illusion! I saw the golfer first and didn’t even notice the centurion until you mentioned it.

  • any mouse

    That could be the new logo for the NHL’s Ottawa Senators!

  • Kered

    I actually saw both at roughly the same time. I use the widget, so it was a bit smaller when I first saw it. Still, I recognized the golfer first, but even as I did, I was thinking, “That looks like one of those helmets.”

    Though, admittedly, I was thinking of Trojans.

  • edthedish

    Subtle but cool….

  • AmsterdamMan

    yes its a nice one ,,,

  • mark

    I like this one, but I can see faces in almost anything…

  • Elliot

    cool for a golf logo

  • Adam

    Also looks like a speedometer for golfers.

  • Tabour

    Anyone else see the face from the golfers shirt?

  • vencel

    Wow..amazing illusion..at first i thought it was just an ordinary golf player..lol

  • Yurix

    At first, I saw only the arc, and thought it was a speedometer. Then I scrolled down and saw a golfer. Then, I looked at the title and saw a Spartan head with corresponding helmet. :)
    Anyway, excellent design and illusion!

  • anonym

    aaa….. now i see it

  • ben

    i know it’s
    hard to tell
    how mixed
    up you
    feel
    but this is true, there is both,
    and a face too!

    scroll down for the
    answer

    “I know it’s hard to tell how mixed up you feel”
