Mike are you talking about the design that was just up and now is gone?*Or am I mistaken? Or am I just imagining things?

Reply
logomotive Jul. 21 '11

:) Thanks Eric and Mikey. Look I'm an easy going guy as long as someone acknowledges or admits. In fact I give them the Go ahead as long as it's cool with both parties(clients). But to avoid an issue really taps my hide. I cannot honestly believe that this was slightly influenced. I'm pretty easy going in general but when it comes to plagiarism I'm a bit flighty. Ask Roy how he's doing these days.

Jeezus, I think it's time to start looking at barista jobs at Starbucks, what with you out there designing kickass logos like this and making the rest of us look bad. Ad always, top notch work, hombre. Love everything about it.

Yeah, I hear ya Mike.**Just to avoid any accusation of plagiarism, I removed my beer locomotive from my gallery. I'm not married with it either, but it seems that some folks may seem to think you invented the steam locomotive back in 30's :)

logomotive Jul. 23 '11

Cresk you can honestly tell me you were not influenced at all?

Reply
cresk Jul. 23 '11

Common Mike, I thought we had this discussion before right?*

Reply
cresk Jul. 23 '11

Conclusion, yes we all get influenced all the time, whether we like it or not. Sometimes it's unavoidable and hard to escape this fact.**That being said, yes your locomotive logo might have been of a great influence that time for sure, because apparently it must have been permanently stored somewhere in my memory. Looking back at both designs I must shamefully admit that I was really shocked about how - unintentionally - close our designs were.**But I think, or at least I hope, you know I'm not the kind of guy who carelessly traces or copies another men's work. You know I'm just too fucking proud for that.

Cresk, I appreciate your response. Thanks. I know your not directly copying and I agree I think we all influence each other from time to time. I just think it's common practice and ethical out of respect for each other and the client to discuss this between one another before it gets to another level. That's all. I think mostly it was the overall shape and the way the cowcatcher was styled for me. All good in the hood.
