This picture is an advertisement.
It's the first Apple Logo.
It was designed in 1976 by Ronald Wayne
the third co-founder of Apple along with
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak..
The scene takes place in the street, at school.... / during the day, at night, in the evening... Place the elements within the picture: in the background, at the bottom, on the right... behind... in front of... there is, there are, we can see... and describe them.
The scene takes place in the country. In the foreground there is an apple tree. Its curved trunk is on the left side of the picture. The branches are on the top. An apple, surrounded by a halo, is hanging from a branch.
This tree spreads over a man.
This man, who is wearing a wig, is sitting on the ground. He is leaning against the trunk of the tree. He is concentrating on a book he is helding in his hands.
The apple is just above his head.
A sentence on the outside border says: Newton... A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought... Alone
I think that... , maybe... , I suppose... , the atmosphere is... , it seems as if...
Nobody exactly knows why Steve Jobs chose 'Apple' to name his corporation, but it's obvious that R. Wayne associated this name with Newton.
There is a popular story thatNewton was sitting under an apple tree, an apple fell on his head, and he suddenly thought of the Universal Law of Gravitation. Newton himself often said that the fall of an apple had helped him to discover gravity.
Maybe, when he designed this logo Wayne thought: just as an apple inspired Newton, so the name 'Apple' will inspire S. Jobs.
And we know what happened next: ... Macintosh,... iMac, iPod..., iPhone
In my opinion, I (don't) like this picture because..., it makes me think of...
A good logo must be simple in form and convey a clear message. That's why I find this one a bit too complicated and too intellectual.
In fact it lasted only one year. It was soon replaced by the 'Rainbow Logo'
