Apple: The Silhouette

Shortly after Steve Jobs died, 19-year-old Jonathan Mak reimagined the Apple logo in a stunning and beautiful way. It's a silhouette of Jobs, identifiable by his trademark circular rim glasses, bowing his head in reverence to the company he made famous.

Yamaguma's take: "The Apple logo with Steve Job's silhouette is one of those irreverent strokes of genius that happen once in a lifetime. The academic don't-mess-with-the-logo design discipline was overridden by a sincere appreciation for the profound significance of the man who created the company and the brand."
