Good one, Mike (as usual).

One thought... Could the pen still be clearly recognizable if A and U weren't joined? Seems to me that it would be a more subtle way.

Thanks Kosta, I had it both ways and worked both ways, but juts thought it strengthened the United aspect that's all and could be used separately.

What the hell?! Sometimes I just wonder what they were thinking. It's kinda funny you can tell which logos they probably did design themselves... lovin that huge reflection on the (not so) Subtle Labs logo...

@Mike, Nathan, & Colin re: logo ripoff sites & ZOMG DIY AND SAVE HUNDREDS logo design sites:

Wow, what a dripping wetbag of douchiness! Look at the scrolling logos on the CrapApple site. Apparently they also designed the Siemens logo AND the Nivea logo. THOSE D00DS R GUD @ DESIGNERING!!! LOLOMGWTFBBQ111!

Beautiful simplicity but so effective. Consistent work as always! Shame about these rip-off artists, I too found some of my work on another %u201Cdesigners" online portfolio. How do they expect to replicate it when they dont even possess the basic skills? Their poor clients!

do you guys not find these rip off artists as frustrating as I do? could you potentially sue over something like this? someone should start a blog of all these rip off artists and link to their site. If they have analytics they'll see where it's coming from and hopefully feel ashamed..

Thanks guys.
Orca and Danny, yes been frustrating for years but unless we artists continue to battle together they will keep on doing it. Steven does a pretty good job of doing this on his blog http://www.thelogofactory.com/logo_blog/ and Antispec .
I think there could be a good blog JUST for this purpose however.

Technically, we absolutely have the right to sue over copyright infringement. But that involves money, lawyers, and time, and that's why most artists don't even bother with it. But, the first step would be to send the offending party an official Cease and Desist letter, in which you provide proof (copy of the work, date completed, URL of client's website if the logo is in use, etc.) of derivative, or flat out plagiarized copyrighted work, and express that noncompliance will be met with full legal action. Give them time to comply, like 30 days, or something. Sometimes, this is enough to scare these bastards into compliance, and you will have won a sma battle cheaply. Unfortunately, there are some thick-skulled, defiant dullards out there who will do nothing, at which point you'd be looking at getting a copyright attorney involved. The good news is that copyright infringement cases are relatively easy to prove, and chances of winning your case are pretty high.

At any rate, if you really wanna bring an end to all this crap, you've gotta be prepared to take action.
