Oh, for heaven’s sake, not another letter about similar designs (DW 19 January).
Why are the Carnegie-Brown and Edit designs similar? Because they both attempt to be “fashionable” designs. If designers persist in following trends (typographic splitting of words now being actually rather dated), then similarities are bound to occur. Have you ever slavishly followed clothing fashion to the extent that on attending a function you discover others wearing the same dress/tie/ jacket/underpants? Try invoking the passing off law there, or writing to a magazine to complain!
Stop grousing, and start employing a little wit or some real ideas to differentiate your work.
