Irina Blok Designed That Android Logo


android logo

I’ve always loved that cutesy Android logo, it’s one of the most distinct logos used by any communications brand that I know. Not only is it cute, but it’s supremely simple, ultimately flexible, and transcends the digital world into the real world effortlessly.

Who Made that Android Logo: a nice little article by The New York Times describing the humble beginnings of the Android logo, but one that didn’t make the designer, Irina Block, particularly famous at all.

Irina Blok may have drawn one of the most recognised logos in the world, but her association with the green Android has not made her famous. Blok can think of only one incident when she garnered the public’s attention for designing it. In 2010, she and her 6-year-old daughter were in a movie theater waiting for “Alice in Wonderland” to begin when an Android logo flashed on the screen. Her daughter, Blok recalls, suddenly stood up and yelled, “My mommy invented that!” Everyone in the row in front of them turned around to stare. Blok was so embarrassed, she says, that she sank down behind her tub of popcorn.
