W3C unveils HTML5 logo

The W3C has unveiled its new HTML5 logo giving the specification a striking visual identity for the open web platform.

W3C unveils HTML5 logo

W3C hopes to encourage early adopters to use HTML5 and provide feedback to the W3C HTML Working Group as part of the standardization process. The logo is available to anyone who wishes to let other users know they are using the latest spec. The HTML5 logo home page includes a badge builder (which generates code for displaying the logo), a gallery of sites using the logo, links for buying an HTML5 T-shirt, instructions for getting free stickers, and more. The logo is available under “Creative Commons 3.0 By” so it can be adapted by designers to meet their needs.

Web Designer loves the new logo. What are your thoughts? Let us know at The best comment will bag a copy an HTML5 book. Get writing.

      Personally, I really like the logo that the W3C has come up with for HTML5. It’s very striking and bold, and in my opinion, provides a unique identity for the up-and-coming web standard.

      Hopefully it will get people excited for the new standard and will get people implementing some of the new features into their sites and applications, as well as get some of the more popular features implemented into the most popular web browsers (I’m looking at you Internet Explorer).

      Bags better than their own logo I must say!

      A nice vivid and bright design, represents a fresh new dimension.

      It looks good, but will consume more space in the pages.
