The Android logo was designed in 2007 by Irina Blok, a graphic designer of Google. She and her associates decided to make it an open-source logo. That meant that any company of the world was free to customize it. Later, Blok said about her creation that it was like a child, who she had given a life, and now it was to live its own independent life.

The Android Logo’s main element is a robot consisting of a quadrangular torso, semicircular head with two antennas on it, and limbs presented by bars with rounded ends. Irina Blok came up with the symbol as she had received a recommendation from her boss to include a robot in the logo.
