Laurent Marcoux took the highly recognizable Apple logo and gave it a re-design after redone the death of Steve Jobs. Dubbed 'iSad,' this logo shows how corporate logos can still keep their charms after being updated by consumers themselves. Good graphic design should resist time and be upgraded.

They want a new type of graphic communication. They want to decide what’s hot or not… So? Well, Laurent Marcoux shows that your brand is now their brand, it is now the brand of everyone, so make sure your logo is up-to-date, clever and upgradable!
