Does OK Cupid's app icon tell a larger narrative of chaos and distress? Let's use the logo design of popular dating apps to explore the state of the companies and the substance of their products. In doing so, we're joined by Jessica Helfand and Michael Bierut. They're the cofounders of Design Observer, and hosts of The Design of Business | The Business of Design and The Observatory podcasts. We're also joined by Teddy Blanks, a graphic designer and founder of design studio Chips. He makes the logo for our podcast.
