A forum member had posted a student project logo design for some input in regards to color selections. Seeing the initial posting kind of stunned me, and as I read down the thread I came across a post from another forum member:
When I first saw it, I thought it reminded me of something... but I’ve just noticed that it looks like the Cat Adoption Team logo from Jeff Fisher.
Good - it wasn't my imagination. At least someone else saw a similarity. It seems that my own post on the Typofile thread kind of brought the discussion to an end.
So, in this particular case is the student design "inspired" by my own, created with a major element "borrowed" from my design, a "blatant rip-off" of the C.A.T. logo, or the result of two brilliant minds thinking alike? All I know is, that from my perspective, it seems a bit too close for comfort - but I haven't gotten my claws out yet.
