: I work in a London design consultancy. At the moment we are producing a brochure and have taken some visual ideas from another book. The designer has adapted the look and feel of the images but putting the 'new and old' side by side there is little difference. To produce this book brochure I am aware that we would need to reference the book, author etc but is that it or would I have to contact the publisher and ask for design usage?
: Thanks for your help in advance
Dear Dawn Puddy,
From what you say, it looks like you are on the edge. Get consents and do it in writing and get a written record you can fall back on if you are chalenged.
