Graphic/mark portion of a logo I created for "Tupelo Plastic Surgery" Center out of Mississippi.
Might be mistaken with Hawaian Airlines especially if it'd be published on purple background ;)
@Logoflow I welcome your comment, but am not really seeing a resemblance personally, unless you consider the sharing of a woman's face and a flower as being too similar. With the existing of millions of logos out there, it's about impossible to have unique imagery in a logo. It's the stylizing and creative differences between any logos that differentiates them.
If we're getting that picky with things and assume an airline logo can be confused with a small plastic surgery clinic, I'm sure the same could be said about your "Roma" logo closely mimicking every other building logo out there... Or your Pelican logo being mistaken for the hundreds of other pelican logos out there... Or your Oxford Airport logo looking like the logos in the following links or many others I've seen:
Obviously when we use common subject matter like a woman's face, it's not expected that it's the only logo to use this imagery. It's the design approach that hopefully makes it unique. When I design a logo, I search sites like this one, Google Image search, and LogoLounge. If you can offer any further tools to avoid possible look-a-likes, I'm all ears.
@DesignBuddy Why so offensive? I was just trying to draw your attention to resemblance to other characteristic logo but a bit hard to remember the exact shape at the same time. Put your logo on the purple background and show it with the logo of the HA, both without typography, to the average people... Ask them which logo is for the clinic...
Your reaction for my comment is kinda weird, maybe subconsiously you feel that I'm right about it ;)
@Logoflow Apologies if my reply came across that way. My intent was not to be offensive or defensive, I just thought it was weird that your mention could easily apply to 90% of logos if you search hard enough, including some in your own portfolio (as I pointed out). I guess I expect comments like yours to be reserved for more blatant look-a-likes. I honestly don't see the similarity between the two logos, so when you said "could be mistaken", it seemed a bit extreme.
@DesignBuddy That's ok, man. That was my first thought when I saw your logo and that's it. You're right that now sometimes is very hard to design logo that's not even close to other logos. So if I hear that my logo is similar to other logo, my reaction is usually curiosity if my logo is better or worse :) Using my way I can say your logo is as good as HA logo :)
@Logoflow Thanks. I've had a crappy day and probably read too much into your comment. I'll try to be less defensive :) Take care.
