Apple Computer Co.



The very first Apple Computer logo, drawn by Ronald Wayne, depicts Isaac Newton under an apple tree. The border reads "Newton...A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought...Alone."


Apple Rainbow

Created by Rob Janoff in 1977, the Apple logo with the rainbow scheme was used from April of that year until August 26, 1999, but continued in use as an Apple Menu icon until the release of Mac OS X in 2001. According to Steve Jobs, the company's name was inspired by his visit to an apple farm while on a fruitarian diet. Since the logo's introduction, the design itself has remained unchanged.



In 1998, coinciding with the iMac's release, Apple made the logo black. A silver version was also in widespread use until the mid-2010s.
