Started as a simple challenge to create an illuminated-styled 'G' for a t-shirt to represent Gutenberg. The community ended up adopting the mark, and this became the official logo for the Gutenberg project of WordPress.
G is for Gutenberg! The front of this t-shirt features an illuminated manuscript ‘G,’ inspired by the Gutenberg Editor. The letter’s design brings together touches of old typography and a contemporary line, just like the Gutenberg project references both the introduction of printing and the revolution of online publishing.
Extra: For the sharp-eyed, the back of this shirt shows a subtle reference to Wapuu, the beloved WordPress mascot.
