Story about Apple Logo Icon
By now, we all know that Apple, matter-of-factly, has powers beyond that of a fruit. Apple has successfully infiltrated our lives, and has “forced” us to buy things we don’t need at least a hundred times. Apple has sold more than a billion iPhones, and continues to dole out more than our collective pockets could possibly handle.
The first Apple logo was the Newton Crest, which painted Isaac Newton sitting under a tree, with a glowing apple that seemed about to fall right on his head. Designed by Ronald Wayne in 1976, it had a border that read, “Newton… A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought … Alone,” with the company’s initial name Apple Computer Co. etched in a ribbon wrapped around the crest.
For obvious reasons, that weird logo only lasted a year. It was replaced by the Rainbow Logo, which debuted the bitten apple in rainbow colors. To dispel any BS suggestions of the logo’s meaning, graphic designer Rob Janoff had said that the bite in the Apple logo is there for people not to mistake it as a tomato. Additionally, Janoff decided to put green at the top to match the location of the leaf.
By 1998, the multi-colored logo was axed to make way for the monochrome one—the symbol we see emblazoned on all Apple products today.
The following Apple products also have their own icons:
- Apple Watch
- Apple TV
Use the Apple logo anywhere you wish—on notebooks, walls, shirts, or even on Android products.
