‘No Labels’ Accused of Ripping Off Their Logo

It seems like a controversy over a label would be the last thing an organization called “No Labels” would ever have. They may now have to change their name to “No Logos.”

I wrote about “No Labels” last month after noticing that the vast majority of the group’s organizers at the very least fall under the label “Democrat.” I’m referring to them as NLINOs (no labels in name only).

“No Labels” had their first conference yesterday, and Ben Smith from Politico noticed something similar — a distinct lack of Republicans (you’re not supposed to notice that, Ben, they’re not using labels). There were some GOPers in attendance, but mostly center-left Republicans who were swept from office by the Tea Party tsunami.

But forget about that for the time being, because one of the first problems “No Labels” is having is, ironically enough, their label — one of their logos specifically. “No Labels” has been accused of ripping off the design for their t-shirts, etc. from the “More Party Animals” logo by a New York graphic designer unaffiliated with “No Labels.”

A “No Labels” designer originally told Ben Smith that the two are “clip art coincidences”:

Gothamist contacted the “No Labels” designer, who acknowledged that the two are “too close” in design, and the group has issued an apology. If we come to find out that the apology has been plagiarized, the irony circle-of-life will be complete.

So it’s back to the drawing board. Here’s my suggestion for the replacement “No Labels” logo:

Speaking of similarities, Nice Deb noticed that “No Labels” seems to be little more than the “Coffee Party” under a different, uh, label.
