Graphic Design Student Creates Viral Logo in Tribute to Steve Jobs; Receives Several Job Offers

When Jonathan Mak, a second year graphic design student decided to pay his homage to the legendary, game changer Steve Jobs, little did he know that his effort would touch hundreds of thousands all around the globe.

But that is precisely what happened. Mak’s logo, which he created to pay tribute to the founder and ex-CEO of Apple, went viral right after the news of Jobs death.

Mak is a second year graphic design student at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In a statement to the AFP, he expressed his surprise at the overwhelming popularity of his tribute to Steve Jobs by saying: "I feel so unreal.”

“You don't get to 180 thousands notes without feeling slightly insane," he posted on Tumblr, a microblogging site.

He also revealed that newspapers in Germany and the U.S have contacted him for buying the copyrights of the logo, and also he was receiving job offers from multiple companies.

"I am flattered by the attention but I would like to focus on my studies before taking on any full-time job," said the 19 year old.
