I only just realized that the logo of PCPartPicker is a PC case with the side panel being removed

I remember on an pcpp livestream you talked about the design language for the old logo, that it was multiple parts and one was getting selected, or something like that.

Yep. The current version that I did was an evolution from the original PCPP logo, just simplified and redrawn to better proportions and clarity.

Damn, I never if took that hard of a look at it. After 4 years, i just learned something, and judging from the comments, i am not the only old school guy who has learned something

I guess I thought everybody knew it was a pc case, although the Minecraft piston idea should get extra credit.
