Celebrity mention of Celebalike

If any of you have heard of new US series ‘New Girl’ you will of heard of Zooey Deschanel, she is the actress taking the US by storm at the moment.


Over the last few days Zooey has used Celebalike app, resulting in an increase of downloads and us climbing into the 4th Entertainment position in the US charts and number 2 in the UK Entertainment charts.

Many of the comments she has posted suggest she looks most like Katy Perry, which we can’t argue with :-)

Imitation is the highest form of flattery

They always say that imitation is the highest form of flattery and if this is the case then we at Ventutec are overly flattered.

Take a look at this website we found http://www.sedizayn.com/index.html



Yes, that’s right…… it’s the Turkish version of us. Only it’s not us!

This site uses all of our source code and even visibly showcases our client websites as an example of their recent work on two of the homepage graphics.

Ron Sims one of our clients must be pleased with the flattery as he features on the homepage.

Whilst we agree that looking at other websites for design ideas and inspiration is important in any industry, we think this may be taking it a little too far.
