    Yeah I think it was just the concept of using the number 1 as part of the letter n.

    "Tell yourself at every step in the design process that someone has undoubtedly already thought of this and what can you do to really set it apart. In design, and particularly logo design, the pessimistic axiom that “everything has already been done” is becoming more and more true, and it is only the virtuous designer who can continue to stand out in a sea of sameness.
    Mike Davidson"

    Wise words indeed.

    Some really shocking similarities in a lot of those logos. Most of them I think I'll give the benefit of the doubt, the Blackburn Market, and Barrow logos for example are both pretty unoriginal (they've been selling these I<3 Blackburn T-shirts in the tourist info office for a few years now).

    You've reminded me of this page on the Panic website Damon. They basically name and shame everyone who's ripped off their iconic Transit Van logo, it's classic.

    Haha, I know! It's amazing how cheeky some people can be. If it's on the internet, people seem to see it as being public property.

    Pretty funny! It’s pretty strange the one for Ubuntu, Human rights and free software, it’s like on the same page, just that the first applies to computers, and now they have similar logos!

    It is interesting that they have the Scottish Arts Council logo on there as a few years ago they had to slap down Quark for copying it as well.

    Quark's version:


    The details of the Quark debacle are detailed in this article at The Register.
