The new logo retains the heritage of Vertex yet suggests something new, exciting and different, and stands out from other marks being used in the industry. The logo is designed to deliver a bolder, more refined image of Vertex that preserves the company�s core attributes of quality, innovation, dependability and trust.
Images (opinion after)
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.
