I see my Colorado/Mountain design that I did like 10 years ago all over the place. Etsy, a shirt in K-Mart a couple years ago, and there’s even a dispensary in downtown Denver that has a sticker of it on their window. I realize it’s a super common design to do for anything Colorado related, and I have no issue with people doing their own version. What irks me is when people just straight lift mine and use it for their Etsy shop. Especially because they always steal the first draft version and not the updated one. At least use the better looking one.

A local highschool down in PA is using a ripped version of Fraser Davidson's Redskins logo as their main mascot:

Davidson's work for comparison:

I know they're selling merch with this stolen/tweaked logo on it as well, but I can't find any images to back that up. Have seen it while going to games though.

A school in my area also rips off this logo

Somebody in the graphic design department loves my script! Can you blame 'em? ;)

Honestly, SF, you should probably just reach out to the team about letting them use the script as an official part of their identity at this point. After all; it's so good that even the team themselves can't tell it's not their own official script! 😜

Scrolling through the App Store and I come across this game called Super Hit Baseball or something like that.

 

Check out the logo for the Badgers.

I keep forgetting about this until I notice I still have it open on my phone.

This is the logo for Shahr Khodrou of Iran.  I saw it while looking at something about the AFC Champions League and immediately thought it looked kinda familiar...

Some over seas online store is selling basketball court rugs and used an image I created for my site from this last season.

 

 

They have a handful of other courts, mostly NBA, but I'm sure they came from other creatives and potentially users from this site.

This is pretty speculatory on my part, but there's a guy that posted a fun take on the Murder Hornet fiasco and made a concept for Seattle's expansion franchise. All well and good, he acknowledges in a reply that it's "mostly borrowed elements that were altered and mashed together" (from here, it appears). But then the post gained a bit of traction and started making its way around Twitter. He's latched onto a bunch of the posts asking for credit and eventually was "forced" to upload the design to a site to sell merch, even though he really didn't want to. I don't get the impression that he was the original artist of the stock art but 🤷‍♀️
