Creator of Steve Jobs Tribute Lends A Hand To Coca-Cola When a version of the familiar Apple logo circulated online last fall with an alteration that paid tribute to the recently deceased Steve Jobs, people around the world wanted to know who designed it. Some of these people even wanted to hire him. Ogilvy & Mather China tracked down and reached out to Jonathan Mak Long, a then-19 year old graphic design student at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, about working on a project for one of its clients. Based on the three-word brief that Ogilvy proposed to Coca-Cola ("Sharing a Coke"), Mak created a design that isolates the brand’s famous red and white ribbon, and modifies it into a pair of hands passing a bottle of soda. Outdoor posters featuring the work appeared in Shanghai this past weekend. Hat tip to Campaign China.

[1] Settlement here dates to pre-Roman times, but the biggest influence on the City as we know it today was the rebuilding project that took place after the Great Fire of 1666. Some discount this as hearsay, since Aubrey was simply repeating what he had been told by one William Dugdale.
