Hello, tell me, please, will it be plagiarism or can this logo be placed on logoground?

Original photo in shutterstock: https://yadi.sk/i/eZB8QewhFlQDZQ

My work: https://yadi.sk/i/--qpol49l0CzOg

Hello aleksandr

First, your work is in first link and shutter one in second link.

It's bit different.

1. Style. You made this logo that is not familiar with the logo on the shutterstock
2. Idea. From shutterstock, I didn't see clearly the designer put a pencil pointed eyes there. Maybe he/she uses another concept.
3. color/effect. It's different at all.

Well, i guess it's just ok. But don't know how admin and the other would react to this.

Wish you luck :)

Hi Aleksandr,

I think the two are too similar. There are obvious differences, but there are details which make them too similar like the flames, the light reflection on the black nozzle of the rocket, the colors, proportions, shading etc.

Additionally if you created your work based on this stock image, that makes yours a derivative work, for which you would need permission from the copyright holder. Best to make it entirely from scratch without referencing an existing image.

Aleksandr,

The original rocket with the drop shadows is actually a photograph of a paper-craft rocket. It is currently being used by thousands of companies in various contexts, as it is a very famous stock photograph. According to Google, the earliest version is from 2014.

I really doubt that the original photographer will give you permission to copy his work and create a logo from it. In any case, it will be very difficult to trademark a copy of this photograph. I recommend you delete that file from your computer to avoid any future confusion.

It is always better to start with an empty canvas and never copy someone else's hard work. Ever.

Also, you are lucky that you didn't submit that copied logo to LogoGround. You should read every available document on the website, including this one: https://www.logoground.com/onestrike.php

Hope this helps,

Ortega Graphics

@Ortega Graphics, thx! Knowing the rules of the site and I had this question. Thanks for the opinion of the community. I try to be critical enough about my work, but if I have questions, I try to use the forum. ;-)

Layer them over, check how well they align, i can already tell they will so its not a coincidence.
You cant redraw other peoples work, and if you cant make up your own designs why bother? You will never be successful without that skill and you'l undermine other peoples designs worth.

You did a good job and I like your logo much better than original. Certainly it's not a simple trace. But it's visible that your aim was to make a direct reference to the original. This goes against the idea of the logo mark which should be as original as possible.

If you used the same style in reference to something from real life or some idea of yours everything would be fine.
