We were recently contacted by designer Michael Cullen-Benson after he discovered a rip-off of his original Smoking Duck Productions logo being used by Serious Quackhead aka Paul Jannetta of Kirkaldy, Scotland.

It appears that Mr. Jannetta quite liked Michael’s original logo and decided to steal it, make some minor alterations and pass it off as his own work.


From the overlay it is quite obvious to LogoThief that all Mr. Jannetta has done is rotate Michael’s original logo eight degrees, stretch the overall height by 10%, and trace directly over the artwork. Even the element added by Mr. Jannetta to turn the cigar into a pipe is primarily the end of the original cigar traced and rotated.
