Ah, Kanye West (or Ye now?). The king of controversy and press attention strikes again having supposedly ripped off an independent black-owned business. West's new merchandise sports a religious-themed graphic that is suspiciously similar to a brand logo that already exists. 

You may have missed the release of West's album, Donda, that has been building anticipation over the past few months with a stream of concerts and campaigning. The rap star played the Mercedes Benz stadium earlier this month where he introduced fans to his latest sound and concert-goers had the opportunity to buy his merchandise. However, the latest shirts looked dubiously similar to Infinity G8ds' design. Infinity G8ds are a clothing brand established in 2016, that pride themselves on their positive values of unity, faith, love and a positive mindset. Maybe Kanye's design team should have checked out our tips on how to develop a killer logo strategy.
