By removing the lower left leg of the letter K, this logo allows your eye to fill in the rest. By hinting at what’s missing, the design is certainly far more unique and memorable than a more basic K.

Cropping is a similar tactic to removing a stroke. They both provide a little mystery and complexity to an otherwise simple logo design. The curved line cuts into the bottom of the lower-case D, evoking the horizon.
