Apparently some enterprising restauranteurs wanted to open a breakfast place in Isla Mujeres this year, but didn’t want to go through the hassle of actually having to work with a design company. Instead, they nicked Rooster’s name, logo, and signage. Pollo loco.
The original Rooster, located in St. Louis, MO can be seen on the left in the picture below, here in Flickr and at Roosterstl.com. The logo was designed (with ‘Rooster’ hand drawn) by my friend and coworker.

Found this pic on a blog called 365 Concepts by Rupinder Singh.
Seems like a rip of this design by Glenn Jones from Glennz Tees
A quick google image search of “snake charmer” also turned up this picture by Major Drapkin & Co which Rupinder Singh used for his version.

And the “design” by Tina O on her website, WannaWearByTinaO.com! Photo stolen from Dorothea’s Closet, item not purchased by said “designer” but purported to be her own design and being sold as such.
Here is some fairly shameless plagiarism from Australia. I only know about it because they contacted me saying they love my work and would like me to design them a new logo!
I designed this spread for SummerWinter Magazine, a mag that I am art director of in Australia, it was also up on the SummerWinter website for quite some time. They are a fashion label and they’ve used practically the same design for their logo
Sure, they’ve changed it from ‘Summer’ to ‘Strummer’ but it’s still basically the same design. I don’t even think it’s a good choice for a logo, I designed it to be almost illegible!
I’m not really that bothered, it’s not my best work and I did it about 4 years ago. I haven’t replied to them yet, what do you guys think I should say? I feel like I should send them an invoice for their first logo along with the quote for the re-brand.
