Hong Kong design student says Jobs tribute not original

HONG KONG (REUTERS) - A Hong Kong design student's tribute to Steve Jobs that generated a buzz in cyberspace following the death of the co-founder of Apple last week is not original, the teenager said on Monday. Mr Jonathan Mak, 19, said he was not the first to come up with the design that fits Jobs' silhouette into the bite of the Apple logo. He was speaking after comments surfaced on Twitter that a United Kingdom (UK)-based designer, known as Raid71 on the web, created the original design in May. The design posted by Mr Mak on the Internet spread like wildfire in cyberspace on Thursday, just after the passing of Jobs. It drew hundreds of thousands of posts, and commemorative caps and T-shirts peddled on eBay featured his design. The logo was even used by Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher as his Twitter profile picture.
