I didn't know that history, yet I still appreciated the logo.
I imagine very few of the population know that either.
I would never have connected the two without your telling me, yet I still can't connect the chunk of the apple that is missing with the Issac Newton story, or how the missing chunk portrays anything to do with innovation.
Its all very well in hindsight saying it is very suitable, but I do believe that it is possible to say the graphics of such and such are good or bad without knowing anything of the theory, but just by viewing the graphics.
I believe once you tie yourself to that theory you have limited yourself to a large degree, since you are in reality saying you can't give an opinion on an image until you get some data first about the image.
I don't for one minute suggest I understand what goes on inside the mind of an abstract artist or what they are trying to convey, achieve, express. But nevertheless, I can look at their work and can either like or dislike it instantly.
