      As professionals we don't participate in contests or encourage them. They demean the profession. Here is an article about why

        Relax. A logo contest among members of a 'grafik' community isn't going to hurt your bottom line.
        Especially one where this sort of ''logo'' gets a lot of likes. More than 4 colors, gradients and transparency? No worries.

        That AIGA article is aimless and wandering, it's an excuse to rant about a bug up their nose over one design contest at a book store. Try this instead (even though I have issues with some of their whining as well.)

        I've entered contests like that if I like the prize being offered. $500 to buy books? I'm there. But there is also usually that little clause about ''all entries become property of the contest holder.'' I don't spend a lot of time on them and don't consider them a paying job, just a throw-away. If that's the quality they want and I have the time, and the prize is something I want, who cares? i've actually won a few of them. Sometimes these things are offered for fan participation too. Mountain Dew had one a little bit ago. Of course things can go horribly wrong...

        But actively pursuing crowdsourcing gigs in the hopes of getting paid? I got better things to do.

        As for having seen this particular logo before...not sure. Elements of it look kind of familiar but not enough to bring it to the surface. Trademarking is a funny thing. Actually, having a semi-trademarked, stolen logo for a contest site would be sort of ironic, wouldn't it?

          I just ran a reverse image lookup on it and nothing is hitting as a match. Not even in ''visually similar images.''

            Font design style similarity is not really enough grounds for trademark infringement.

              I've seen dozens of logos recently that use that same "style". It's popping up everywhere.
