So I woke up this morning, and I thought to myself: what will the Panther logo look like?
Why would I be thinking about such a minor thing, when we have G5s waiting for us… well, I still wanted to know. Because logos are cool. My first thought was: Panther fur. Although I couldn’t really picture a Panther fur X. It would be very similar to the Jaguar one, only slightly more yellow. Then it hit me though, there are two kind of Panthers. The other one being the black one. Could this be it? A black X? Representing something powerful, stylish, sophisticated, and maybe… just maybe, a bit mystic?
It being a blue X would never happen. That would be taking a step back, in several ways. The most obvious being that blue = Aqua – and OS X has never been more Aqua-less than with Panther. So, could it be brushed metal then maybe? Maybe, but then would it look more “industrial”? More like OS X Server? We’ll have to wait and see… only a few hours left now.
