My take would be a new elephant but still an elephant. Use a slightly 
more dynamic color of blue. The soft blue (IMHO) is just too, blah.

Basically and "updated" elephant. Every logo goes through a life cycle 
where they slightly change or color are slightly modified in the 
beginning of their life cycle.
