Some thoughts on the new look.
Opinion

The old logo had the right idea of using the location pin icon that is now so ubiquitous to double as a "C" for its name… but making it the actual initial of the wordmark made it look too amateur. The new logo makes good on the original concept but executes it way better with a clear, standalone icon that is more evidently both a "C" and the location pin. Using it large against a smaller wordmark gives it the higher hierarchy it needs and establishes a recurring device from website to app icon to app UI. The wordmark is okay… going for a safe, friendly structure that looks fine, although the "f" bothers me a little… it's like it's too squat. The illustrations are cool but, oddly enough, very similar to those of its main competitor, Uber. Overall, a definite improvement and a nice move to own purple in the ride sharing space.

Thanks to Augusto Anteghini Oazi for the tip.
