How is it possible that two logos are unintentionally similar?
As designers we are exposed to the same surroundings and influences. The same styles, colours and patterns surround us and we often work on similar projects, therefore, it is assumed ideas will often look alike. Some may say ideas are “stolen or plagiarised” however, more often than not, this may not be the case.
Here are some examples I came across:
Carrier & Ford
Cooperative Program & Colgate Palmolive
Toyota and Jincheng (Chinese car company)
Quark & Scottish Arts Council
BYD (Chinese car company) & BMW
