I don't think it's a coincidence. Maybe JN didn't do it on purpose but I don't think it's a coincidence. There are several different things in common with the logos.

If he didn't do it on purpose it is a coincidence, and the only similarity is arrows in opposite directions. How dense are you?

Another blatant rip-off bighead: http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/thumb_8/11111166808gfz84.jpg?

What about the FedEx Logo?

That said, I really like Homer's logo.

You searched a stock photography site for an example? Jeez, it really bothers you that I think this. Yeah, I dunno, just looking at those logos, I have a feeling JN saw Homer's before he made his. It could be a coincidence but I doubt it.

What's your band's logo?
Maybe I just think that because of this quote. Oh c'mon, so not only have you never clicked that link in Homer's profile for as long as it's been there, but you didn't even think to look for a link even after you opened this thread? Obviously he would've provided a link if it wasn't already somewhere obvious. It just sounds like you're trying suspiciously too hard to make it seem that you've never seen the thing before.

I see Homer backing down from it, but I don't think he would've made this thread if he didn't think that too. It's not like it's that amazing or funny otherwise.

Edit: It's in his signature too.

Homer
05-07-2009, 12:27 AM
Actually, I firmly believe it was a coincidence. I made this thread out of pure boredom and because I had just noticed that his new avatar shared a similarity with my band's logo, which I find to be pretty cool. That being said, I really don't care if people rip me off, in fact I encourage it. It shows that people pay attention (though, again, in Rick's case, it's a coincidence).

Just remember, I didn't invent opposing arrows.

P.S.
I'm glad people are liking the logo, so I'll take this opportunity to say that I've got some great music coming to accompany the logo.

Well gee...let me explain it like you were 8.

Their band name is Against Belief.

Belief is represented as the blue arrows. They are AGAINST belief which makes them the RED arrows. And by intermeshing those two items you come up with a cool geometric pattern that also doubles as a band logo that not only looks good, but gets the point of the band and band name across.

I find it a bit funny that bighead is certain that Ricky saw Homer's logo before he made his, hinting that Ricky thought it was cool enough to copy... but then bighead goes on to say they're "just opposing arrows". Then 1) why would anyone ever steal it? and 2) "just opposing arrows" is a pretty vague and common design. Just type it into google http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=opposing%20arrows&sa=N&tab=wi&um=1

I bet Ricky ripped off every single one of those.

By the way, I think Homer is really cool and I like his music, yet I've never clicked any of the links in his sig. I don't feel any sense of certainty that Ricky would have, either.

05-07-2009, 05:25 AM
Well, he's done it. Bighead has finally pushed himself into the realm of self-parody.

JohnnyNemesis
05-07-2009, 05:29 AM
*sigh*

I didn't make my logo. I don't do graphic design and don't know how to. The person who made the logo has never heard of "Homer from the Offspring BBS" or Against Belief, has never seen this BBS, and has no idea what the hell this is or what's going on here.

As a person hired to make graphics for me, the artist did what he could. Knowing that I'm from New York and a frequent public transportation user, the artist made the logo based on the arrows you frequently see throughout NYC train stations.

Examples:

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o258/so0727/UptownBronx.jpg

My website provides more context, which is right there in my sig.

Being a client, I had little to do with the actual creation of my logo.

SO, considering all that, yes...in every sense of the fucking word, this was a coincidence.

Seriously bighead, what's with the conspiracy theories for everything?!

but then bighead goes on to say they're "just opposing arrows".

Lol, that was the point, I was being sarcastic.

I dunno...there's just certain people that things never seem to add up for, even if they say they have an excuse. Again that "what's your logo" comment (even after he opened the thread) just seems suspicious to me and pretty unbelievable. And now JN claims he didn't make the logo at all, someone else did. But I find that hard to believe since it's a pretty damn easy drawing. And if someone else made it, why wouldn't that be the first thing he said? Like, seriously...wouldn't that be the very first thing you would say if that were the case? And what does he mean he had "little" to do with the creation of the logo?

Something just doesn't add up to me. Could be a coincidence...but it doesn't seem like it to me.

I can see why bighead would think that johnny maybe saw homer's logo in his signature before coming up with the logo and maybe unconsciously using it, but johnny's explanation really makes sense so I guess it was a false alarm. Doesn't mean bighead had a stupid idea, it made a lot of sense and it would have seemed that way to many. I don't think he was saying that with a negative feeling in mind, he was just pointing it out.

Peace now girl scouts :]

Anyway, Bighead's totally right. JN always steals other peoples ideas, that's why he's always bringing up his penis. Its like "Hey, hey, woah, this was my idea first...*unzip* woah! When did that fall outta there???"

05-07-2009, 10:09 AM

You're doing it again. You're thinking that the way you think is the way EVERYONE not only should, but already does think, which is absolutely batshit insane for innumerable reasons.

It wasn't the first thing I said for two reasons:

-Homer wasn't being serious with his accusation.
-It's such a ridiculous idea that you are (well, were) the ONLY one who really took it seriously (have you noticed that yet?)


And what does he mean he had "little" to do with the creation of the logo?

It means the artist asked what kind of aesthetic I was looking for, and suggested NYC and the subway. I said I liked his idea, and that something related to the New York City subway would be awesome, hence his use of Helvetica (and the arrows being White + Bolded Helvetica) all over the banner on my website, and the album cover being on a NYC subway platform with tiling behind it, etc etc etc.

When have I ever, in the 5 years I've been on here, been known for or into any sort of graphic design whatsoever, even if it's easy shit?

Protip: musicians hire outside artists to make logos all the time. DEXTER NOODLES GREG AND RON DIDN'T MAKE THE FLAMING SKULL LOGO OMG FUCK my LIFE!

Christ, you're willing to look the other way when your friend commits sexual assault, but a complete amateur artist not making their own logo "doesn't add up to you"?


I don't know why his explanations seem so suspicious.

It's because you don't like me.


Bipolar Bear being rational and mature. When did this happen?

He's a good kid deep down.


When did that fall outta there???

It's 'cause I'm Latino :(

ps. Everyone but me has been talking about my penis since like, 2005. It's only when I join in on the joke that people go OMG FINE RICKY GET OVA URSELF (this also happens when I make fun of bd007h for incessantly bragging about his 6-incher. Everyone else is allowed to make fun of him but me!).

I know that people higher designers, but this situation is a little different. Not only is it a strange coincidence, but you've acted suspiciously as far as I'm concerned. Are you sure you didn't tell him about the arrows yourself? Those arrows really don't remind me of a subway...

A typo encompasses any kind of error. Holy shit, it's like my job here is being your personal dictionary.

Things never add up with me, yet you're friends with someone who commits sexual assault and it's just like "lol k". Sounds like something is much fishier on YOUR end (personal bias) than mine (not creating a design on my own).

Typo is a general term used to encompass all errors made while typing. It's not hitting the wrong key in this case, it's a mental error.

Think about this again: you're accusing me of lying about my height.

Let that sink in.

Lying about my height. My height. And not only that, but lying about my height by adding only ONE inch.

All right, seriously now. Bighead, I think JN did argue a little weird in this thread, but that's just human. And it's not like we're talking about some important issue. When the importance of a topic is below a certain point, I think it's natural to not concentrate a 100% on what you're saying and how you build up your arguments.

I don't think it's a lie...I just have a strong feeling it's an extremely generous round up from a person who's apparently insecure about his height.

JohnnyNemesis
05-07-2009, 01:21 PM
...and how would that not be a lie? An extremely generous round up based on insecurity would be a straight up lie. But I can see where you're coming from a little bit.

But no, I'm not insecure about my height. I'm insecure about lots of things, but height? Come on. I have a bad back (kyphosis = hunchback), so if you see me walking around it probably looks like I'm close to 5'6 - 5'8, because my spine is so fucked up that I look like Quasimoto, but when I stand up straight and check my height (hence me saying "upright"), I'm just about 5'10, as I've been saying all along. Look at the 173864 pictures of me that exist on the BBS and you can see that.
