Speech Bubble Logos
Anyone else been noticing the abundance of speech bubbles these days? It seems as though they’ve become the de facto symbol representing the interactive and personalized nature of Web 2.0 – and startup companies can’t seem to get enough of them when it comes to designing a new logo.
As a catch-all symbol, the speech bubble is tough to resist. It contains what everyone wants to say about the “new” web: user-generated, communication, collaboration, commenting, social media, community, self-published, my voice, our voice, rating, ranking, sharing and the rest. On top of that, it’s simple with a minimum of line, approachable and cuddly, and you can always count on people getting it. What more could a would-be communicator want?
