Jonathan Mak, the 19-year-old Hong Kong resident and design student, became a celebrity when he created this logo as a tribute to Steve Jobs. The logo fits Jobs’ silhouette in the apple bite and it became a rage on the Internet and at stores selling Steve Jobs memorabilia like t-shirts, mugs and other souvenirs. However, it emerged that Mak was not the first to come up with the idea, when people recognized the artwork to be similar to a British designer who is active on Twitter as Raid71, Reuters reports. To be fair, Mak had mentioned on his Tumblr page he was not sure if someone else had come up with the idea before him.

I enjoyed the process regardless, but please let me know if somebody else beat me to the idea!

Without whipping up a controversy, it was found that both artworks are different and Mak acknowledged he was not the first but he was not inspired by the earlier work either.
