Tripping Down Memory Lane

If you’re reading this post you probably know a decent amount about Tripping. Perhaps you’ve created a profile or checked out our safety features. You may have stayed with Tripping Hosts on your last trip or even hosted someone yourself. But no matter what, we’re pretty sure you’ve seen our logo.

But this wasn’t always our logo! No, long ago in a faraway time known as “2009″ (I know, I can barely remember it too) when we first started building Tripping, there were a few other logos up for consideration. Today we’re sharing those designs with you.

We hope you enjoy these pieces of Tripping’s past and – as we continue to make Tripping the best and safesty hospitality network on the planet – let’s all look forward to the future of travel!


PS – Did we make the right choice? Let us know which logo is your favorite in the comments:

    Ooh, I like the second one- green with the swirly earth! But still, good choice :)

  • Mario Merino

    4 and 7 were pretty cool too…

  • Mark Rojas

    I like the current one, but i also agree with Mario 4 and 7 are cool too!

    i like your current logo because the “i’s” look like two little people traveling to see each other. was that intentional?my second favourite is #2 (the blue/green 3d one) and i don’t care for #4 at all, but i can see why guys might be partial to that one. thanks for sharing these logos – it’s cool to see behind the scenes!

    I think I like the current one the best! But this might be because I automatically associate it with everything I love about Tripping, so I’m already biased :) Also, some of the other ones are really cool, but they remind me of other companies. Tripping’s color and design are very unique. Good choice, team!

    Good call on choosing orange for the Tripping logo! I seem to remember a comment at TechCrunch Disrupt ’10 about orange replacing blue as the cool color in the startup world. I like the energy of the logo; the color and the dots on each “i” make me feel like getting up and going somewhere fun.

    I like 4 but the current one has intalled in my mind as Tripping’s corporated image already!

    Orange is a unique color for a logo. It’s not as a common and naturally the color stands out in a crowd of logos. I love its simplicity and boldness.

    I like the 7th one, that one is the best of all.

    There are some really interesting logos here. Some of them are more obvious about travel than the current logo, but the current logo is very warm and welcoming, which I like.
