Steve Jobs Tributes Online
Online magazines, newspapers and leaders have had the challenge of responding quickly and creatively to the news of the death of Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple. Apple’s site, apple.com, has a simple black and white portrait of Steve Jobs, with an invitation for fans to email their tributes in. Wired took a similar minimalist approach, providing a simple black and white portrait. Google included a text tribute. BoingBoing transformed its site with a Macintosh-inspired WordPress theme. Messages from Barack Obama (The White House Blog) and Bill Gates (Twitter) became quotable memes. We’ve included a few snapshots of the online coverage for your inspiration.
