Flutterfly Effect

The following is the ‘Flutterfly’ logo designed in 2008 by Kevin Burr of Ocular Ink. The new Kalyan logo is astonishingly similar to this. On contacting, Kevin replied via e-mail: “the Kalyan logo was stolen from my portfolio.”

“Trust: That’s what matters above all”

TVCs and print ads of Kalyan Jewellers are famous and these are handled by Nethra PUSH Advertising, Palakkad (Kerala). Nethra PUSH and Kalyan informed us that the design is by an American designer and they have purchased the rights. But Nethra PUSH didn’t give us the name or details of the logo designer. I hope that they are telling the truth.

Kalyan Silks Re-branding

Kalyan Silks re-branded their logo in February 2011 and they retained the elephant in the logo. Read Kalyan Silks story here.

    A Scandal in Kerala!!

    Oiyyyo! Kikkidu Tehelka…

  3. how can we trust them????

  4. Why blame poor Nethra? Takashi Walter has done a new campaign for Jayalakshmi which is ditto of what Jelitta had done some time back – for Alappat. And it has been proved beyond doubt what Stark has done for Kerala Tourism is definintely lifted from a foreign ad.

  5. @Nimal: I am only talking about the logo controversy — not about any ad campaigns by Nethra. I am not aware of any logo related copy scandal from Takashi Waltar, Jelitta or Stark.

  6. @Nimal: The Kerala tourism ad is not inspired from any foreign ad. You may be referring to the Mexican tourism ad. That ad was released in March 2010 and the KT ad in August 2010. The work for KT ad started much before the Mexican tourism ad was released….

    Actually copying is a born trait with we Indians… I am not generalizing, but most famous people in media, movie, entertainment fields are all copycats…
