The new logo of Apple was not created by the young of Hong Kong
October 10, 2011
Jonathan Mak, of 19 years old, Hong Kong, said on Monday that “he was not the first who came up to insert the outline of Jobs in the biting of the apple in the Apple logo”.
The picture that emerged after the death of Steve Jobs, had become a success on the Web
Reuters reported that “there were comments on Twitter that suggested that a British designer, known as web Raid71, created the original design in May”.
“The design spread like wildfire through cyberspace on Thursday, just after Jobs’s death. It caused hundreds of thousands of comments, and commemorative plates sold on eBay and shirts with his design. The logo was even used by Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher as their Twitter profile picture”.
Mak, a student at the School of Design at the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong, recognized that he is not the original poster, but said he did not “usurp” the British designer.
The young designer said to the news agency that “I came to the logo on my own anyway, and I have a very clear conscience, but I am delighted to recognize the fact that someone did before me”.
