New TechCrunch50 Logo, And Our Apologies To Apple

We’re happy to show off our new TechCrunch50 logo this morning. The old logo, which is below, was getting a little stale.

The logo was created by DESIGN about TOWN, who worked with us over the last few weeks on a number of concepts.

The goal of the logo is to convey a sense of community and discussion. Thus, the text chat bubble. Real time feedback from the audience and judges to launching startups is a crucial part of the culture of TechCrunch50.

Our apologies to Apple, who may think they now own the idea of a text bubble. If you want to discuss, you know where to find us. And we promise we were locked into this design before the news about the supposed trademark.
