Silicon Valley is known mainly as the technology hub for thousands of startups. Like every year, 2014 has also been a year full of progress and prosperity for this San Francisco Bay Area. Lots of new companies have emerged in different industries, not just in technology. Today, we are going to analyze some recurring patterns of logo design from the local startups of Silicon Valley in this year to gauge trends for 2015. These trends will be at their peak in the upcoming year and need to be understood, along with the other steps that must be taken by all aspiring entrepreneurs for branding. Here, have a look at the new hype and the startups which gave it the fuel.

Create A Logo For Your Business

Logo Trend #1: The Reels & Musical Notes

Symbols from the mass media are going to be en vogue in the next year, especially, for digital media companies dealing with movies and music. The symbols are going to be more versatile, though, or so I hope…

• Verselt


Verselt is an app that lets you converse with your friends in music by sharing your favorite quotes and clippings from a song. You can simply grab a verse, caption it, and share with your friends. Similarly, you can listen to what they share, reverse them, comment, and become a fan.


Reelgeni us

Reelgeni may not have a very unique logo icon, but their mission certainly stands out from the crowd and you are going to love it for what it does to satisfy your digital media craze. They are striving to map and index the world media and creating a video search engine that allows the users to find specific scenes within a video, powered by themselves.

• The Video Animation Company

The Video Animation Company

The Video Animation Company provides services of creating explainer videos. These high converting, fun and informative animated video explainers describe what you do in only 60 to 90 seconds. They are expected to engage the audience, explain, train, and then, finally, convert.

Logo Trend #2: Rectangles

In 2014, hexagons were quite in for logo designs belonging to any industry, be it technology or investment companies. Next year, it’s going to be all about the rectangles in both vertical and horizontal manners. Check out who’s already rolling in that direction.

• Appthetable


Appthetable is a mobile platform for the restaurants where they aim to enable customers to order food directly from their smartphones and pay in a similar manner. It doesn’t compromise on the traditional restaurant experience, but enhances it by keeping a record of customers’ preferences, allergies, and order histories.

Logo Trend #3: Speech Bubbles

Speech Bubbles is something even I am more excited to see in the future of logo design. So far, the speech bubble logo symbols I have come across are mostly boring with one or two exceptions at most. Therefore, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for something more unique and vibrant using this very interesting symbol for a logo and icon design.

• Omlet


Okay, don’t you start drooling on omlets now! This Omlet is just an open messaging chat app, created by Omlet Inc. This company was founded in 2012 after years of research funded by National Science Foundation grant.

Launching from Uber cofounder Garret Camp’s Expa incubator, the application operator helps you pick out presents, send flowers, and book flights; just like a responsible assistant would. While it is still in its infancy, being overshadowed by Facebook messenger, it is growing in popularity fast. The best part? It’s free.

• Braidio


Braidio is a cloud-based Collaborative Learning Suite that focuses on three basic human activities, which are learning, networking, and collaboration to build an employee-driven learning economy within an organization. Unlike most existing Learning Management Systems, Braidio offers a fluid, clean and simple user experience.

Logo Trend #4: Dual Colors

Do you find mono-colored logos tedious and unimaginative? If yes, you are going to be thrilled by the latest trend of using dual colors in a logo text.

• Egnyte


Egnyte is an enterprise-oriented file-sharing startup which is making big waves. After startling revelations about the escalation of NSA’s snooping on cloud-based networks came in to forefront, companies starting fretting over their security. Egnyte is a hybrid cloud storage that allows businesses to keep their data in the cloud or on-premises, depending on the level of security they require for each file. The inclusion of blue in the logo is meant to instill trust in customers and set their minds to peace regarding the viability of the system.

• GreenHalo


GreenHalo is related to environment; hence, the green color. It is an enterprise software for waste diversion and repurposing. It tracks, monitors, and monetizes the waste generated from demolition, construction, building operations, and manufacturing.

The PuraBela brand consists of highly effective personal care products that are sustainable and natural. Its branding has been done rather carefully in order to synchronize with the high standards of its customers who are health and environment conscious. One look at the logo and you realize that you’re looking at a personal care product.

Logo Trend #5: Fiery Red & Sweet Orange

Red is hot and orange is sweet – and very, very, in these days, no matter which industry the logo belongs to. In 2015, be ready to see lots of fire and rain coming your way from the Silicon Valley.

It uses a unique matrix of experience and intuition to predict his taste, and he can select the best combination of suggestions by the application to explore that city.
