The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has given HTML5 it’s very own logo, designed by the firm Ocupop.
Introducing the logo, the W3C said, “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.“
The W3C has asked early adopters of HTML5 to adopt the badge and display it on their websites. The W3C is now offering free stickers and selling t-shirts with the logo. The HTML5 logo is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 licence.
There’s also a badge builder allowing you to create a customized logo for your site using the “Badge Builder 5000â€³. Below is an example, which shows the logo along with a range of icons denoting what you use HTML5 for:
The icon choices include the following categories:
- Offline & Storage
- Graphics, 3D & Effects
- Device Access
- Performance & Integration
You can get more info about the new logo at W3C HTML5 logo website.
We like the logo very much. We feel that HTML5 deserves a logo of its own and W3C has taken care of that very well! What do you say about this new logo? Share with us your thoughts below.
