Apple Vintage Computer Stickers
Proclaiming that you were an owner of an Apple Mac computer, before the invention of MacBooks, was a huge part of the 1980s. People proudly displayed decals on their car windows as well as on laptops and later, MacBooks. The logotype is seen as a symbol of pride to those who own Apple products, such as laptops or MacBooks.Who designed the original Apple symbol, now a decal?
The rainbow logotype was designed for Mac in 1977 by Ron Janoff. At the time, it was the only one that was submitted to Steve Jobs and was given approval after two weeks of creation. Promoted through Mac decals and stickers, it was in use from 1977 to 1998.
Some of the vintage promotion and decals that use the symbol include:
- Window decals
