Birth of the elePHPant – November 15, 1998

The PHP elePHPant logo has been around for a while, but have you ever wondered how it came into existence?

For starters, Vincent Pontier is the original designer of the elePHPant logo and here are some reasons why he picked the elephant:

– Everyone loves this nice animal. 
– It makes many services to humans. 
– It is powerful and at the same time docile. 
– It is fast when it attacks (databases). 
– PHP letters form a ElePHPant (look good).
