As a ‘weekend project’ Brian Chan recently decided to push the capabilities of CSS into the domain of recreating well-known corporate logos. The result is quite impressive although from a practical perspective such an approach isn’t viable — the increasing adoption of SVG vector graphics makes this little more than a virtuoso display of counter-intuitive coding. But as Samuel Johnson, of dictionary fame, once said of a dog walking on its hind legs, ‘It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.’ The images below show the CSS-created and original versions of the old Apple logo, with the superimposition demonstrating just how close you can get. Count me surprised.
