LOGOWORKS.COM RIP-OFFS

All images shown below are copyright of their respected creators. In 2005 Logoworks.com was caught ripping off a logo design by Mark Fox. This initial discovery in their online portfolio led to other designers finding additional logo rip-offs.

The below examples show the original logo, define its source, and then the rip-off logo created by LogoWorks.com. We have done this for no other reason then to document what happened in 2005. Since 2005 Logoworks.com was bought by HP and in 2012 went out of business.

As of 2013 Logoworks was sold by HP to a new owner. None of these examples pertain to this new ownership.
