Google Ventures 2015 year in review video, with the new look.

The old logo was fine, abiding by Google's identity standards previous to the redesign but now all those dozens of Google-related logos are getting minimalist facelifts to match the aesthetics of the new Google and Alphabet logos. The new "GV" — are people really going to call it this? I bet it will be the full Google Ventures forever and ever — is a perfect example of the new direction Google is headed. It's simple, minimal, and with a touch of "This is how we roll". The GV monogram takes the "G" from the Google logo, adds some thickness to it and then slashes it with the invisible half of the "V", going all Gestalt on your brain. It's pretty nice and the slash becomes a hip graphic device on their site and future applications.

Thanks to Mitch for the tip.
