ASOS - Copying / Using my logo
In December of last year I was shown a link to ASOS’s online shop where a vest top they had been selling for £32 had been using a logo I had created for a friend in 2010. You can see the top on ASOS’s website HERE
The original logo can be seen here:
You can see from this screenshot that the original file was created on the 19th of August in 2010 and later modified on the 24th of March 2011.
The modified version from 2011 see’s the logo the same, but modified to be bolder:
It is clear if you compare the logo on the vest and the logo I have created that they are the exact same design and it has simply been lifted and added to a vest. You can see that the verticals of the A and Y line up perfectly as well as T and U and also the T in Youth has been replaced with an inverted cross.
I initially messaged ASOS via Twitter stating the case and they were very forthcoming with an apology and to message them, however I then never heard back, last night I messaged them via Twitter again with no response, and now I am writing this blog post by suggestions of other creatives in the hope I will get a response and this mess sorted out.

Ballet Dancers // Aberdeen University King’s College
Last night I had a fun shoot at Aberdeen Uni with my camera club shooting two ballet dancers. We were given permission from Aberdeen Uni to use the space and also plug sockets so we could our studio lights as well as flashes.
A bit chaotic at times as there was several of us, but good fun all n all.

Two new screenprints. Both were very much inspired by Scandinavian design and folk art. They were both created for the Junction Arts 5th birthday bash exhibition with the theme of ‘Birds’. Find them on my Etsy here.

Ministry of Craft - July 6th
This Saturday we took part in the Ministry of Craft in Aberdeen. It was our second stint at MOC, and we introduced a couple new prints. As like last time, we met some great people & had some good sales, so no complaints. Next one we are doing is in October!
