World Wide Web Now Carbon Five Compliant Posted on 19th January 2011 by David Hendee in Design Yesterday, the W3C unveiled the official HTML5 logo and we at Carbon Five couldn’t help notice a flattering similarity: We can't wait for HTML6 It’s taken more than 10 years, but it’s nice to know the Internet has finally caught up with us. Does this mean we don’t have to support IE8? Feedback Comments: 9 Casey McKinnon January 19, 2011 at 7:08 pm That is INSANE!!!! I can’t believe it!!! Reply Phil Rae January 20, 2011 at 11:59 am Um… Similar colour, that’s about it. The shape of the badge, the font, and the gradient are all completely different. Both are good logos but don’t try and flatter yourself! Reply Michael Wynholds January 20, 2011 at 12:07 pm Well, I don’t think either logo uses any fonts, but I agree with what you’re saying. The logos are not identical. I think it’s pretty clear if you read the post that we are joking around about this. We’re psyched that the HTML5 logo has similarities to ours. Reply blurrius January 20, 2011 at 12:53 pm Ok now that I know you are kidding: nice PR-Gag. Srsly, your logo is smart, the HTML5 Logo is lame. I can’t belive someone is paying attention to theri crappy logo Reply Michael Wynholds January 21, 2011 at 8:43 am Thanks! You know, I agree – our logo is better! Reply Christian Bradley January 20, 2011 at 1:14 pm All your logos are belong to us. Reply 1990banks May 21, 2013 at 9:34 am I prefer the HTML5 logo, it’s a masterpiece. However, I’ve seen slightly better concepts of the HTML5 logo online. Sorry guys at Carbon Five. The Carbon Five logo is still an awesome logo, it’s eye-catching and memorable.
