Same Logo?

But which came first?


On vacation in Vegas this Christmas I spotted this sign (a) at a CVS near our hotel which bears a striking resemblance to the Battery Plus logo (b). Both of them are national brands so the questions I have are…

  • Is this just a case of great minds think alike?
  • Could this be a simple cautionary tale of the dangers of using stock vector art?
  • Which came first?

He’s the Creative Director at Paragon and will call you out if you start hanging out with shady-looking fonts and messing around with whacked-out color palettes.

    Also the same as the logo for One Laptop Per Child – just rotated through 45 degrees.

  2. Yeah, the happy X dude must be a popular icon.

  3. the professional designers first task before commencing work is to research.

    so great minds thinking alike is an unacceptable excuse in my book.
