The Rolling Stones issues a slightly altered version of their legendary tongue-and-lips logo to commemorate their 50th anniversary, designed by famous graphic designer Shephard Fairey. It features the original logo surrounded by the wording “The Rolling Stones 50 Years”. The “Stones” has also been tweaked so that the first “S” actually is a number five and the “O” is a zero.

The original Rolling Stones logo was created by iconic graphic artist John Pasche in 1971, making its debut on The Stones’ Sticky Fingers album cover.

Steve Jobs tribute logo not copied

Jonathan Mak, a nineteen-year-old Hong Kong design student created an exclusive tribute logo for Steve Jobs that attracted much attention on the internet following the death of Apple Inc.’s co-founder. It was reported that the logo is not original, but a rip-off.

Mak confirmed that he was not the first to originate the now famous logo design that features Jobs’s silhouette into the bite of the Apple logo, but a U.K.-based designer, Raid71, came up with the original design in May 2011. The “unfortunately homegrown banana”, however, claimed that he was totally unaware of the design by Raid71 when he posted his tribute on the Internet, which was an instant hit and zoomed to the top of the cyberspace.
