This has been brought to our attention, but there's nothing to be
worried about, because while some might see similarities the two are
entirely different in colour tones, shape proportions, rotation and they
both stand for entirely different things. Shazam's logo even applies
gradients, which we don't.

There are many logos out there that look quite the same but are
different. You can observe repeating patterns everywhere simply because
people draw what they see. How many logos have you seen with the same
animal, a car, a rectangle, a circle or any other geometric shape or

Everything is a remix of something.

Nothing ruins creativity like too many voices weighing in. We call it
the Ice Cream Principle. Tell 10 people to go get ice cream with one
condition: they all have to agree on one flavour. That flavour is going
to be chocolate or vanilla every time. Groups of people don't agree on
what's cool or interesting, they agree on what's easy to agree on.
