A friend tagged me in a Facebook post so that I could see an “amazing design opportunity.”
A local burger joint here in Alaska was running a contest to design their logo. If that’s not shady enough, their company name was a slightly altered copy of a national chain, and their current logo ripped off that company’s logo as well.
They didn’t even want to replace the stolen logo — they just wanted designer to place it on a background of “an American Eagle.” The prize? One $1000 dollar gift card — which I’m sure wouldn’t be worth much after they’re sued into oblivion.
Bonus: here’s some of their pitch, verbatim.
Client: We want to help create jobs in Alaska when Alaskans need job tge most. We hoe that our business venture will be sucessful, and we will bexome a publicly owned company. Our head quarter will remain in Alaska when that happens, and we hope to be able to support hundrds of jobs right here in Alaska.
