February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011
[original design by Jonathan Mak]
I found a tiny version of the Apple logo with Steve’s silhouette from the Internet. I think it was from
Leo Laporte’s Twitter account. I forget this guy and now he’s famous. I’m not a graphic designer but churning out the tribute image above took a fraction of a minute on Keynote. New template –> black background –> paste image –> auto center –> add text –> export to images. It made me realize how much we’ve taken for granted what Steve put on the table for people who wanted to be creative but couldn’t because of technical limitations. Now that’s something huh?
If you would like to use this as your wallpaper I have made a bigger 1920 x 1080 version. You can view it here.
