Strip Down Your Logo and Make Your Brand a Classic—Now!

It Took Apple 22 years to develop the simple, iconic logo you know and love today. Now tech startups evolve their branding in 22 months, going simpler, faster. From Airbnb to Snapchat, companies are racing to create sleek, name-free logos that are still instantly recognizable. Oh, and now they have to be readable on a 1.5-inch smartwatch. Witness the rapid weight loss.

Airbnb

The company launched as AirBed&Breakfast in 2008, then rebranded as Airbnb, then ditched that logo for the Bélo, which reminds many of an intimate body part.

Simple

When BankSimple shortened its name to Simple in 2011, it also simplified its logo, going from a skeuomorphic wallet to a mathematically generated set of colored rings.

Spotify

Like many startups, Spotify launched with a jangly, collegiate logo. In 2013 the music streaming company simplified it to a green circle encasing three lines, evoking a speaker.

Snapchat

Ghostface Chillah used to have a face. A 2013 update featured him without his mischievous grin. The founders explained: “It’s because you are the face of Snapchat.” Boo.

Netflix

Back when Netflix was a DVD-by-mail service, it had a 3-D shadowed logomark. In 2014, Netflix dropped the third dimension. Minus points for still being the company name.

  1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s
    equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
    not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  3. Really informative blog article.Much thanks again. Much obliged.

  4. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  5. Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover someone who truly understands what they are
    talking about on the internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

  6. Great blog here! Also your website loads up fast! What host are you currently using?
    Can One buy your affiliate connect to your host? If only my site loaded
    up as quickly as yours lol

  10. An intriguing discussion will be worth comment. I believe that you
    need to publish more about this subject material, it may not be described as a taboo subject but usually folks don’t
    discuss these subjects. To the next! Each of the best!!

  11. I seriously love your blog site.. Pleasant colors & theme.

    Did you make this excellent site yourself? Please reply back as I’m trying to create my unique blog and would want to figure out
    in which you got this from or precisely what the theme is
    named. Cheers!
