Both logos resemble a sun: Walmart’s logo has thick lines that look like sun rays and Yeezy’s proposed logo has lines made up of a set of dots that also resemble sunlight.
According to Walmart’s letter, the company communicated with Yeezy in July and August 2020 and again in each of the first three months of this year. “To date, we have not received any conclusive information from Yeezy regarding the planned use or any cooperation from Yeezy in order to find common ground,” the letter states.
Walmart has been using the sun-like logo since 2007, and Yeezy filed documents for its proposed logo in January 2020.
The Yeezy team has not yet replied to a CNN Business request for comment.
