Opinion

The previous logo sort of had the right idea but suffered from a bad case of start-up-itis with a very rudimentary execution. (Bonus points for matching the smirk on the smile to the serif of the "k", though.) The new logo transfers the smirk from the double-e to a theater-style armchair where the seat rest is the smile, the armrests are the eyes and the back rest is… I don't know… the forehead? A mohawk that turns into massive bangs? No matter, the point comes across. It's a happy, dorky seat that pays off of the name in an endearing way. The animation is cute too. The wordmark is not my style but it works perfectly well. Overall, a great, simple evolution that hopefully doesn't Uberize in five years.

Thanks to Matt Yow for the tip.
