Yahoo logo FPP: Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer discusses how she redesigned the new Yahoo! logo over a weekend.
But in the actual linked post itself
, she describes getting together with the logo team, mentions everyone by name, and uses the word 'we' everywhere.

However, the impression pretty much everyone in the thread seems to have gotten, understandably, given the FPP, is pretty much the opposite. Quoth one comment, even after I had pointed that out:
"I don't know anything about logos and wordmarks and typography, so I'm just going to be curious about why the CEO is so keen to claim the credit here, good or bad. Even if she designed this on her own, on her iPad, she should be shining the spotlight on her team, not herself.
But then I don't know anything about CEOing, either."
Honestly, this post should be replaced with one that doesn't make stuff up -- I know there are lots of comments already but I strongly suspect most of those would not have been posted in their current if the FPP had not misinformed them.
