I just got this interesting email from a MBA student (Basit) who claims that Mobilink ( Pakistan’s premier Mobile connectivity provider) latest launched portal/program uses corporate logo which is a rip off from a Brazilian designer and site. See details below and post your comments/thoughts if it is really a rip off or real creative designer stuff
Basis says :
I’m simply shocked to see that Mobilink’s recently launched ‘jazba’ the logo of which is 100% copied from a logo design tutorial http://abduzeedo.com/creating-crazy-cool-logo . This was revealed when I was generally searching on Google for one of my marketing project of MBA.
Do you spot any differences in concept, apart from few rotations and slight modification of colors.. such a creativity I must say. Interestingly the logo on left is from http://zagora.com.br/ site. whereas Jazz Jazba website is http://www.jazzjazba.com/
How is it possible that a company like Mobilink is ‘all done’ with creative ideas! At another time I got quite impressed how wonderfully Mobilink has copied the idea without even putting any effort to it. Special credits goes to design firm CreativeJin for their inspirational creativity.
Basit Muzamil Further says :
I think my class-fellows and I are simply stupid that we usually spend a lot of time to search on different sites for our assignments. We should rather follow the so called leader of Pakistan’s telecom market which will save our time to become a leader like Mobilink.
Well, I think at this level the design firms and corporations must pay special attention towards these kind of things. I remember a while ago one of microsoft chinese site was using rip off design and Microsoft immediately took that site offline because of the same reasons. Let’s see how Mobilink approaches this one..
