Kanye West forces small business to redesign Ye-inspired branding

Kanye West appears on Creative Bloq more than we ever imagined he would. But as long as he dips his finger into design, we're here for it. The latest Yeezy story is right up our street, as he has reportedly started legal proceedings against a restaurant for using too much Kanye in its branding.

A small Australian burger restaurant, called College Dropout (inspired by West's first album), had Ye at its core for over a year. During that time, branding included a themed logo, menu dishes based on song names and Ye-inspired art on the walls. But West got wind of the situation and legal representatives have apparently asked the restaurant to remove all reference of Yeezy, except the name (see below). We guess the owner will need to check out our how to design a logo guide.
