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 ;)
Edit: After viewing my response here from a few years ago regarding LogoFlow’s mention that my logo looked similar to Hawaiian Airlines, I can see how I was overly defensive in my response.
I despise design theft and took their comment as insinuating I had somehow borrowed from the other logo, when in actuality they were simply pointing out how the logos shared similar attributes. As a result I overreacted and became defensive.
I had pointed out how it’s nearly impossible with simpler logos to come up with completely unique concepts (especially nowadays with so many new logos being created every year). But where I was unfair in my reply was in my providing examples from LogoFlow’s own portfolio and claiming how they too share similarities to other designs.
The reason I’m revising my initial comment is because I see how I overreacted and was overly defensive in my response. I don’t think it was right of me to have listed examples from his/her portfolio in attempt to prove a point that didn’t need proving. For that I apologize.
@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.
@Logoflow Hey! It’s been awhile since I’ve been on LogoPond. I was checking out some of my logo posts and noticed our back and forth from a few years ago. I barely remember the exchange, but was surprised to see how I took such a defensive posture when you seemingly weren’t being accusatory, but just pointing out similarities between my logo and another. I should have been grateful to have it brought to my attention.
I myself often call out blatant design theft, but sometimes see designers being accused of ripping of others despite the strong possibility the similarities are nothing but mere coincidence (particularly with simpler designs and concepts that are easier to come by). So I guess I took offense in my wrongful assumption you were being accusatory. Anyway, just wanted to apologize for my jumping to conclusions and overreacting.
@DesignBuddy Ohh man, ancient history :) That's ok, I appreciate you words. I hope you're doing well! Take care Buddy!
Glad to see you two still around more than 2 years later :D @Logoflow @DesignBuddy
@LPAdmin Rollin' with the best! LP till I die :)
