Designing facts behind the unique Apple Logo
The first Apple logo was designed by Jobs and Wayne in 1976, the picture frame of Isaac Newton sitting under an Apple tree with a ribbon banner around the frame written as “Apple Computer Co.” The implication of logo was “Newton… a mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thought”. The logo was changed by Rob Janoff, who provides logo designs for Apple. The logo was designed in early 1977 when agency got account. The new Apple logo by Rob Janoff was introduce in April with the new product called Apple II.
Rob Janoff was the designer of logos of some other famous multinational companies like Intel and IBM. The logo was a multicolored Apple or better known a ‘Rainbow Apple’ which containing seven colors of rainbow and a bite taken out of its right side. There were several bindings or sayings about the intention of the logo designed.
The design of logo commemorates the discoveries of gravity (the apple) and the separation of light (separation of 7 colors) that was done by Isaac Newton. Also it can be seen as a dedication to the ‘fruit of the Tree of Knowledge’ in Adam and Eve’s story. The authors like Sadie Plant of Zeroes and Ones believes that the logo is designed as such as a dedication for Alan Turing the father of modern computing, who committed suicide using a poisoned apple.
Some says that the stripped colors are used to represent or advertise the color capability of the Apple II computer. Whatever may be the assumptions the basic design of the logo is remained unchanged after the little changes made to its design. For the last few years the logo was changed (especially in color) such as aqua colored logo, monochrome themed logo etc…But now Apple uses glass – themed apple logo instead of bright colored logos. The monochrome based theme is designed with white and raw-aluminum color schemes.
This new polished chrome logo seems to fit ideally and is consistent with the fresher themes. Whatever may be the theme, the Apple logo is considered as world’s famous logo. The logo is attracting many people by its simplicity in design and the reference facts that given by the people relating to it. Apple didn’t changed this logo since last 30years and probably their will not be any drastic change on it.
