HTML 5 has now received an official logo from the The World-Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and has been designed by agency Ocupop, who’s skills include branding, identity and web design.
Its been created to be used by all members of the web developer/designer community, and on the logo’s site, you can customise your own badge according to the types of technology you use with eight classes that range from semantics to styling.
Ocupop logo designer Michael Nieling said in a statement:
“The term HTML5 has taken on a life of its own; there has been significant confusion and debate both within the developer community and in the public at large as to what exactly HTML5 is when the term is used outside of simply referring to the spec itself… The standard needs a standard. That is, HTML5 needs a consistent, standardized visual vocabulary to serve as a framework for conversations, presentations, and explanations.”
The new logo is also available on T-shirts and free stickers are available if you send a stamp addressed envelope, more information is available at the HTML 5 website.
