I designed our company logo by incorporating the two first letters of our name (W and M) and then put a circle around it. We chose a teal color that was pulled directly from the color of a lake we visited. It was by chance that the W and M happened to be reminiscent of mountains.
It's been brought to our attention that Marmot's logo may be too similar and that we should consider changing ours before it turns into a lawsuit at some point. It doesn't look similar to me, but then again I am very attached to our logo and have no clue where we would go from here. I'm looking for objective opinions.
Our company manufactures yoga apparel (specifically leggings) with crossover appeal amongst many sports (outdoors included). Marmot manufactures mainly technical outdoor gear like outerwear and sleeping bags so not exactly the same market but similar.
