Nineteen-year-old Jonathan Mak, a student at Hong Kong's Polytechnic University School of Design, came up with the idea of incorporating Steve Jobs' silhouette into the bite of the Apple logo, symbolizing both Jobs' departure and lingering presence at the core of the company.
The design spread like wildfire in cyberspace, drawing hundreds of thousands of posts, and even commemorative caps and T-shirts peddled on eBay featuring his design.
The logo was even used as the twitter profile picture for Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher.
"It's been a crazy day for me," Mak told Reuters.
"I'm both excited and terrified," added the teen-ager.
Mak said he had received a job offer because of the design.
"I really am speechless," he said in a Twitter post.
