Simply Beautiful Tribute to Steve Jobs


This minimalist illustration of Steve Jobs’ silhouette replacing the bite within Apple’s logo is quickly making the rounds on the Internet. Created by Jonathan Mak, a 19-year-old design student in Hong Kong, it’s a sad but perfect way to pay respects to a man who believed in thoughtful design and beautiful simplicity.

Here are some of the comments on Mak’s page about his illustration:

“This image is racing around the world at the speed of click. Beautiful.” – Karen Siwak
“I think that Apple should buy this design from you and make it their official logo so no one ever forgets! Well done and extremely classy.” – PJ
“The perfect tribute to the man who will forever be a part of Apple and all our lives.” – Rajesh Nidwannaya

Update: Read about how this design has become a sensation over at Reuters.

“Originally, I was going to put a black modified logo against a white background,” said Mak to Reuters.

“It just didn’t feel somber enough. I just wanted it to be a very quiet commemoration. It’s just this quiet realization that Apple is now missing a piece. It’s just kind of implying his absence.”
