Best Business Logo Ever!

I recently saw the logo for the Pittsburgh Zoo.    I love the artistic design!  It perfectly  conveys a sense of wonder and mystery for the zoo.

Despite that, I think that such a complex logo would be difficult to pull off for most businesses.  They don't scale down well when you have to miniaturize them to fit on a business card or a pen.  With that said, I am still puzzled at the simplicity of most corporate logos, which mostly consists of the company name in a specific font and color.  I don't understand how these logos are suppose to brand the company?

I feel that the perfect business logos should be a balance of simplicity and artistic design and it should also embody the the business either in name or product.

Using this criteria, here are some of my favorite logos.
