Who copied who when it comes to the website logo?

    Just noticed this very peculiarly uncanny similarity between website logos.
    Did the JW.0rg come first or after--did the WT copy another website's logo?

    Graphic design has "styles" that go in and out of fashion. There are lots of tech-type logos that are also similar to the JW.org one (the style they no doubt copied too).

    There are only so many fonts and colors that translate well into logos.

    Even organizations that "commission" a new font and color combination is not creating something totally new.

    Yes, JW.org made much of its creating a new font for its logo - but honestly, when you look at the finished product, who'd have realized it really was new - which is probably why JW organization has not taken action against websites that play upon the JW.org logo - e.g., look at the JW org podcast - you'd be hard pressed to decipher how it differs in appearance from JW.org..

    The 0rg's website logo in its internet embracing days used to be Watchtower dot Org -- With the front cover's title W letter of the word Watchtower featuring its characteristic double intermeshed V's, where one is V superposed on the other to make a W like the one in the Whitehouse logo.

    Off topic, but the juxtaposition of questions on the featured page from the Watchtower recalls how the placement of questions in the literature is of ludicrous:

    Where did Cain, the son of Adam and Eve, find his wife?

    Would you welcome a visit?

    Answer: Cain's wife made a welcome visit and he found her with me.

    I don't know, there is a couple of similarities here. I really would like to know who did the logo first, the govt or JW's.

    Even when they preach that Governments belong to Satan, they cannot believe it in their hearts that they really do; hence the urge to copy the Governments of this world surface unknowingly. Hence it is good indication that they copied the logo.

    The WhiteHouse has used the overlapping V style W since at least 2003, possibly earlier.

    "who did it first" things like this are difficult to decide for certain.
