Same same but different as Gabor Palotai and Grey Tel Aviv creates.

Estonia vs Greenpeace

Everything has been done.

In 2005 Designer Gabor Palotai came up with an awarded poster for the exhibition Estonia at the Sjöhistoriska museum in Sweden. Now, 2 years later Jonathan Stirin and Ben Sever, both employees at Grey Tel Aviv has come up with a set of ads for Greenpeace. The resemblance is striking, but both solutions serve their purpose.

What do you think? Stealing, coincidence or homage? And does it make a difference since the later one is for a good cause?

  • Gabor would probably say it is “stealing”.
    One who just found about the two would probably say “coincidence”.
    Grey Tel Aviv could say “homage” if they were asked about it.

    I could say that I don’t really think it makes a difference.
    Maybe Gabor “stole” but we have yet to find out?

    Purpose. Hm. What is the purpose of yellow link color on white background?

    Thank you. Interesting blog.
