The Philosophy Behind the Pixar Corner Logo

Many people have been telling me how awesome they think the new logo for Pixar Corner is. But what they don't know is the whole philosophy behind this new icon, and what it symbolizes, other than Pixar Corner. Well, here's a list of some of the things you didn't know about the new logo:

The three edges that form the corner of the room represent the three main people involved in creating Pixar; John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, and Steve Jobs.

The rubber ball represents not only Pixar, but how this blog is always evolving and in motion, like a ball. The rubber ball also represents the world, and how Pixar's films are meant to be enjoyed worldwide.

Lastly, you might notice a the rubber ball's shadow on the logo. How are shadows formed? By light. How can light be produced? With a lamp. What is the other important Pixar icon? The Luxo Lamp. Therefore, even though the lamp isn't visible in the logo, you can be sure that it is present.

I hope you found this Philosophy Behind the Pixar Corner Logo interesting!
