NWAY NWAY Artist from

but how many times did someone redesigned that stupid rolling stones logo? and don´t you think, i used it exactly because of that? because it´s the most known tongue in the music business? same for pink floyd. or that i love NY thing. it´s a brand and i used its popularity, not the style. it´s a persiflage.
i understand getting inspired by siggi´s work, he´s brilliant. but there is a difference between getting inspired and copy someones style. but if you´re okay with that, than fine. hopefully it wins. :P

No hard feelings, NWAY. I respect anyone that pulls out words like “persiflage”.

You make a good argument.

Whatever happen I still love this work. Its rad. +1 from me man.

scutchen scutchen Human from

This design makes me happy. I think you did a great job using Siggi’s style and I’m glad you tried. +1

I’ve got your persiflage right here: NWAY’s explanation why he directly copied a known logo is lame.

Honestly, it’s fine to copy Siggi’s style. Just keep it to yourself. Keep it in your notebook, or in a folder on your computer. Copying designers can sometimes be good practice. But seriously, don’t make it public, and definitely don’t enter it in contests or try to use it to your benefit in any way.

The difference between using the Rolling Stones logo and this is, the average joe on the street has no clue who Siggi Eggertsson is, yet, you can ask a street child in a third world country what that tongue is, and there’s an okay chance that even they might say “Rolling Stones”. Obviously she wasn’t trying to pass off the tongue design as her own.

According to the AIGA’s guidebook (standards of professional practice), a style cannot be copyrighted.

Using the mouth logo is fine in certain situations. It’s part of the American design vernacular (or is it British?)

But do you really think Mick Jagger wants to see his logo on a Lil Wayne tshirt?

I’m not condemning the use of the mouth logo. But the line is fine, my friends, on all of this.

ferdinandcc ferdinandcc Human from

I don’t know if Mick Jagger wants to see his logo on a Lil Wayne shirt, however, I do know that Siggi isn’t pleased with this design.

Ben, your shirt rocks. To put the Rolling Stones logo on any shirt that isn’t authorized by the Rolling Stones is wrong. You got my vote. Keep ‘em coming. I love your designs!

Nice pixel art. +1

Design2r Design2r Artist from

In my opinion I do not think that is a copy, I think you used as inspiration an artist you like and create their own art …. I liked the result, but you could have used something more, something that set your style, you know? I’m just making a constructive criticism …. So +1.

All the best for u!!
see ya!

farissen farissen Human from

to me, it’s not a copy.
it’s just a design with a similar style to siggi’s geometrical based works.

if this is a copy then does it mean somebody doing a design that has a “sketchy” illustration is copying thousands of other people?

deso35 deso35 Human from

nice art .. :) +1
