Bit belated but fitting tribute to the late Steve Jobs…

A simple but extremely clever piece of design illustration as a fitting tribute to the late Steve Jobs who died last week. The image incorporates Jobs’ silhouette into the bite of Apple’s logo—symbolize both his departure and lingering presence at the core of the company.

Steve Jobs | 1955 - 2011

Steve Job’s passing broke world Twitter records as the highest number of tweets per second, with a record of 10,000 tweets per second, and a total of 2.5 million tweets. The news about the former CEO gained 13,284 blog posts, 25,704 message board posts, and 30,905 news mentions—in part, symbolizing how many lives he’s touched through his work…

The tribute image above which will no doubt become quite iconic, was created by 19-year-old Hong Kong design student Jonathan Mak also attracted over 4,400 likes and 1,125 comments.

A Day in the Life of a Graphic Designer

I love infographics at the moment and this one is just brilliant… and so true. After the Oatmeal’s ‘How a Website Design Goes Straight to Hell’ poster struck a nerve, this one is also a spot on observation of us Graphic Designers out there. It’s a hard life but we grin and bear it 🙂

This was created by Amerikan Made Prints a company started by the husband and wife team of Keith and Jenn Bowman. I’ve got to get me one of these (currently sold out) so in the mean time I thought I would share!

You can see more of their work as well as this one here:
