Opinion

The old logo had good intentions, with the "f" completing the shopping cart drawing but, well, no, not a good idea. The shopping cart imagery is good for the shopping cart user interface icons and should be avoided as a company logo unless you are in the business of making shopping carts. The new logo is a remarkably pleasant update, starting with the wordmark. It has no weird cuts, no unnecessary rounded-not-rounded corner combinations, and it looks friendly and accessible. Moving to a shopping bag icon makes the logo more about the end result than the process of shopping, which makes for a better concept. I find it very interesting that the "f" in the shopping bag is basically the Facebook logo with a handle on a yellow background and the "f" is on speed. I mean, obviously, it's not the same logo but it's the exact same layout. Speaking of the handles… someone gave up on those. The front string looks like a worm coming out of an apple and the back string is not even there. Nonetheless, an improvement.

Thanks to Jonathan D'Mello for the tip.
