Yahoo Intern's New Logo Design Was Way Better

Yahoo unveiled a new company logo last week, but it appears one of the designers who helped come up with the concept may have had other ideas.

After the new logo was revealed, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer personally thanked design intern Max Ma for his help crafting the new design. But as Business Insider pointed out, Ma may have thought that the company should have gone with another design. The Yahoo intern previously hosted his alternative design on his personal website, according to Business Insider, but has since taken his site entirely offline.

Here is a photo of the new company logo that Yahoo recently released:

And here is a photo that Brad Ehney tweeted of the alternative logo that has since been pulled from Ma's website:

Once the other logo went public, many people went to Twitter to express their preference for the unchosen design:

  • 2 The Pie 'Isn't Big Enough'
    "Right now is a great time to be a woman in tech, but there's not enough women in tech," Mayer told a CES2012 panel hosted by CNET. "[I] worry a lot of times the conversation gets really focused on what percentage of the pie is women. And the truth is, the pie isn't big enough. We're not producing enough computer scientist. We're not producing enough product designers. We need a lot more people to keep up with all of these gadgets, all of this technology, all these possibilities." Mayer also commented on the stereotypical culture within the tech world: "There's all kinds of different women who do this. You can wear ruffles, you can be a jock, and you still be a great computer scientist or a great technologist, or a great product designer."
  • 3 Tangible Technology
    "There's just huge growth and opportunity. [T]he fact that the technology is now so tangible in our everyday lives, I think, will inspire a lot more women to go into technology -- and I'm really heartened by that," Mayer said for the MAKERS "Women in Tech" interview series in 2012.

She had just won the International Museum of Women's first-ever Innovator Award.
