Opinion

The old logo was so bad it was almost like a parody of a logo. The new one is quite competent and while the icon is rather ambiguous it doesn't feel out of place.

As a side note: Vertex is a terrible name, there are hundreds of companies with that name; just check this Google Image search result.
