Behold The Brand New HTML5 Logo

January 18th, 2011 01:27 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

HTML5, the next major revision of the HTML standard you’ve most certainly heard of as a TechCrunch reader, now comes with added logo, courtesy of W3C.

The logo is available under a permissive license (Creative Commons 3.0 By). See the FAQ section for more information and check out the badge builder.

Here’s the creative pitch:

It stands strong and true, resilient and universal as the markup you write. It shines as bright and as bold as the forward-thinking, dedicated web developers you are. It’s the standard’s standard, a pennant for progress. And it certainly doesn’t use tables for layout.

And here’s a bit more useful background information, provided by Ian Jacobs:

A number of people have already asked me “What does the logo represent?” We intend for it to be an all-purpose banner for HTML5, CSS, SVG, WOFF, and other technologies that constitute an open web platform. The logo does not have a specific meaning; it is not meant to imply conformance or validity, for example. The logo represents “the Web platform” in a very general sense.

They’re also selling T-shirts and giving away free stickers to promote the logo.

Seriously, what do you think about the logo?
