Quark Are Different… Kinda

I’m probably stretching the connection to design here, but I thought this was worth at least a chuckle.

With Adobe’s InDesign receiving quite a bit of positive press in recent times, Quark appear to have responded in part by freshening up their branding — a worthwhile step to get people to take a fresh look at you.

However, while simple logos are often beautiful logos, by definition there isn’t much to them. As pointed out by Josh Pigford (RockNRollPig) in the forums, their new logo bears an unfortunate resemblance to a couple of pre-existing logos.

I guess the reality is that it is virtually impossible to google for related logo designs.
