Back in the dotcom era, mascots were a staple in startups. Everyone remembers the Pets.com handpuppet.

After the boom and bust, startups started shifting to more serious-looking logos.

But now we’re seeing more startups having a bit of fun with their logos and mascots.

New companies use logos effectively when they quickly communicate what they offer to potential customers who may be unfamiliar with the service. But so many logos seem to say nothing about the companies they represent.
