Facebook was accused by an online fintech bank company, Current, for plagiarizing its company logo.
The logo that allegedly copied was the Calibra logo.
This was caused by the plagiarized side, Current, hinting Facebook by uploading a tweet on their official Twitter account. In their tweet, they compare the Current logo with the Calibra logo in one picture.
If seen at a glance in the picture, the logos of the two companies do look identical to each other.
The Current logo, as the name suggests, is represented by a “tilde” character that is actually shaped like a current. These characters are in a circle. Facebook also, through Calibra, has a logo design with a “tilde” character too which is also placed in the middle of the circle.
The logo difference lies in the white line accent in the middle of the “tilde” character on the Current logo. As well as the “poor” color of the Calibra logo. This was said by Current.
“This is what happens if you only have 1 crayon left,” teased by @current’s account.
They say like that, maybe because if you look carefully the Calibra logo only has one color tone. It is blue. While the “Current” logo is colored with three colors that have shades of gradation.
Even so, it is not yet known whether the Calibra logo is purposely made similar to the Current logo or indeed there is an element of accident in making of the logo. Facebook also still not shows any official statement about the logo.
