This simply amused me - am not saying these logos are identical or even inspired by each other. We've always suffered from trends in logotypes. Some years it's squeezed drops, other years it's the human-like starburst. Then there's bevelling, swooshes, checkmarks and ribbons. The multicoloured type. The nautical circle look. And so on. I'm not sure if this is happening more often as people get logos done for a fiver, or just pick an illustrated symbol they like at a cheap logo-factory, or if it's the same as it ever was. This pairing, having selected such similar colours as well, just struck me as really funny. For a more similar example see Quark and the Scottish Art Council.
