We Look through our Google Analytics reports every day so when I noticed some strange page titles for our website, I had to investigate. It turns out that someone liked our old design that much they decided to make their own version.
Don’t get me wrong i am all for copying and creative license, as Picasso said “Good Artists Borrow, Great Artists Steal”.
The way we look at this type of thing is every artist borrows, steals and is influenced by other people’s work. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and people who do not apply their own creative flavour will always be just not as good as the original a bit like the supermarkets own brands of coke, looks ok and tastes not bad but as coke have said for years there is nothing like the real thing.
