Toolbox Blog: resources, tips, tricks & info for creative professionals

We’re Flattered. Sincerely

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

But it’s still slightly annoying when someone blatantly copies a design element from your site – and even more annoying when they link to said copied element and cause you bandwidth problems.

I guess AgencyTool has come into it’s own because a certain site, who shall remain nameless (unless they turn out to be difficult), has hijacked a link layout from us.


Now, I realize that these are somewhat branded images of those sites, but at least save the images to your own files, or switch up the order, or use a different style or put them in a different area of your site – something, anything!  We could have done something like this but we decided to take a somewhat less harsh approach by just switching out the images.

Moral of the story – don’t steal other people’s work!!  If you do, at least be smart/sneaky enough not to link to the images directly.
