A logo definitely isn't a legal notice, but it *could* be an author
attribution (although to me it seems more a project attribution or
even an advertisement.) If it is considered an author attribution,
it's still only reasonable where the code is used as originally
intended in a graphical environment. If the code were somehow adapted
for non-graphical use there'd be issues.
