Please stop about complaining the usage of your images, you will never know where and how your microstock image is used, this is the world of microstock. In the worst scenario , if someone uses an your vector image and he puts a copyright on it, you can be sued too.

Ignorance must be bliss :)

@sweetgirll - No, I do not sell at clipartof. Thanks.

UPDATE: I contacted the business via their Facebook page. The owner responded and was very surprised to see this. He had paid a "designer" friend of his to develop the logo. He is very disappointed with his friend but glad to know the truth. The owner of the restaurant and I are now discussing how we can make this right.

Thanks to all the MSG folks who offered their input, I will let you know how this all unfolds.


This type of thing is rampant these days as the tools are available to anyone..and anyone with the tools can call themselves a designer. Good to hear they are working with you.


I have seen it many times...usually a customer comes to me and shows me what other "designers" have done and it turns out to be clip art. Then they specifically ask me for a custom logo, which is what they thought they were paying for from the previous "designer".

Are you telling that really exist people paying for a logo?

In this case, he did know where his image was being used.

Yep, just finished one for a client. There are a lot of savvy buyers out there that love a stock art image of mine, but want something custom or exclusive. Most of my freelance work now is from walk-ins that saw one of my stock images. It even pays all the bills. It's almost like a real business.  ;)

Of course, I make more money doing freelance work for clients than selling stock. And clients are willing to pay for custom quality work...however every time someone passing themselves off as a designer claims stock content is their own it hurts the design community. It's fine to use stock in designs as long as the client understands...passing it off as original work is not acceptable...but of course it happens.

So how did you create the apple logo then? How did the design take form?

A weird guy named Steve Jobs asked me for a nice logo for his new computer brand. We met at breakfast, he wanted a nice logo, something simple but cool. We was eating and when i was biting my apple he said: "Holy crap! i want that  apple", i said i had already bitted the apple and there was a lot of apples in the basket. He said the apple is healthy, sweet and an apple at say keeps the doctor away! Everyone wants an apple!
The rest is history..
By the way maybe he didn't eat many apples...

Thats not what I asked. How did you create the logo? How did you design it, what methodology?

Final Update:

I have been communicating with the owner of the restaurant and we found a good solution.

I'm drafting a quick letter that gives them permission to use this image as their logo (not copyrights, just use of the image).

In return, the owner has donated $100 USD to a charity bicycle ride that I do every year to support the MS Society. Warm fuzzies for all involved (except the so-called "designer" that claimed my work as their own).

Now on to the next one... A food truck in Memphis is using my work as their logo, but even more irritating is the graphic designer that features that work on their portfolio.  :o
