We were recently notified about the eLance portfolio of ‘designer’ Arun Kumar. It appears that Mr. Kumar has filled his portfolio with the work of others in an effort to dupe potential clients into working with him on the freelancing marketplace website.

The examples shown below as they appear in Mr. Kumar’s portfolio are actually the work of four different, talented designers. The Giraffe Logo is the work of Elena Zhitko and can be seen here in her LogoPond portfolio. The Fishline Logo was designed by Milos Radojevic of GeniusLogo and can be seen in his LogoPond portfolio here. The Illusion Logo is the work of Anthony Lane and can be seen here in his LogoMoose Portfolio. The LoveClip logo was designed by Rich Scott of Designabot and can be seen in his portfolio here.

Our suggestion would be to anyone seeking to hire Mr. Kumar that they instead hire one of his victims.
Update 21st December: Arun Kumar’s profile and portfolio have been removed from eLance.
