Hopefully not the “worst ever made”

Since we’re on the theme of logos: There are two logos below that seem fairly similar. What is the connection?

 

Hint: The similarities do NOT end here :)

    Golang logo (left) and Glenda, mascot for Plan 9 (right) were both designed by Renee French. But that’s not all… the GO language ported over std libs, compilers, linkers, and assemblers from Plan 9. (A lot of people who worked on Plan 9 also worked on GO)

    Or… Were you referencing their roles as tech co mascots like Duke and Linus?
    The question is a bit ambiguous.

    And … for even more connections, both logos are parts of movie titles (Glen or Glenda, Plan 9 from Outer Space) from 1950s that are on the list of worst movies ever made.


  16. Gordon, the Go gopher mascot, drawn by Rob Pike’s wife and illustrator Renee French

    Glenda is the mascot of the distributed operating system Plan 9 from Bell Labs.
