Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Theft

Update

The offending image has been removed (along with the ClinicalReader Twitter account … strange.)

We owe a great deal of our early success to FeedStitch’s fantastic visual design. What you see today was no small feat for Owen, our designer, who subsisted on nothing but Tab and Run DMC records while we pelted him in the head with box after box of Adidas.

While it has been a boost to our collective egos to see the design featured on numerous CSS and design galleries across the web, we were really flattered when we saw a very similar rendition. I’m happy that the folks behind Clinical Reader thought so highly of our design that they decided to pay tribute to our original (thanks to Chris Martin for the head’s up).
