No Logo

The Logoworks fiasco has been an ongoing, very interesting read. The story is kind of your basic good vs. evil, except, like all things in real life, very muddled. Comes down to this company, Logoworks, who will design a logo for your company on the cheap. Really cheap. Some designers on a HOW Magazine forum, already kind of bewildered by these kinds of companies, like most designers are, started seeing duplicates in Logoworks’ catalogs, i.e. they were copies of ones already in use by other companies, i.e. plagerism. That, of course, starts everyone looking for what else might be stolen. And more images are found. But then it goes back and forth, with some legitamacy and some just chocked full of that “let’s get really fired up!” energy you see so much of on the internet. For the whole story, including all the links and quotes and whatever else you’d need to wrap your head around this case of good design vs. cheapo logos, or originality vs. plagerism, this site has all you need to know.
