From 1976 to 1998 Apple‘s logo was a technicolor, rainbow-hued apple with a bite out of it. Although Apple toned things down a bit in the late ’90s, many have a fondness for the classic version of the company emblem.
The iconic design, created by Ron Janoff, can still be seen today — 36 years after the original design’s debut — on fan-made items and carefully preserved vintage accessories.
