A logo (Greek λογότυπος = logotypos) is a graphical element, (ideogram, symbol, emblem, icon, sign) that, together with its logotype (a uniquely set and arranged typeface) form a trademark or commercial brand. Typically, a logo’s design is for immediate recognition, inspiring trust, admiration, loyalty and an implied superiority. [1] The logo is one aspect of a company’s commercial brand, or economic entity, and its shapes, colors, fonts, and images usually are different from others in a similar market. Logos are also used to identify organizations and other non-commercial entities.

Lateral Thinking: When a low probability line of thought leads to an effective idea, there is a “Eureka” moment and at once the low-probability approach acquires the highest probability. – Edward De Bono. Excerpt from a book by John Townsend & Jacques Favier titled The Creative Manager’s Pocketbook. Page: 2. ISBN: 1-870471-69-5.

A copycat is a person that mimics or repeats the behavior of another. The term is often derogatory, suggesting a lack of originality. The expression may derive from kittens that learned by imitating the behaviors of their mothers. – Wikipedia.

Eureka selling I Phone for KD 400 and stealing other people artwork!!!


 

Source: Eureka selling iPhone for KD400 and stealing other peoples artwork

Client: Eureka

Agency: in-house

Country: Kuwait – November, 2011.

Moey took a picture of a Eureka ad in the newspaper for Eureka in which they are selling the 8GB iPhone for KD400! Thats over KD250 more expensive then if you bought it yourself off the Internet. If that wasn’t bad enough Moey also pointed out that the visual of their press ad was copied off a Deviant Art user! The picture above is of the Eureka advert side by side with the original artwork which can be found [Here]

Thanks Moey
