I get that once in a while company's have to change logos, but their new one is just crap. Not to mention how stupid the one main article form them about their new logo. They pretty much act like changing the colors of a mic icon = re-branding.
If they want to change it ok, but this one is just pure crap. Yahoo!s is a good example of cleaning up a logo, but still retaining some personality.
Yeah, that is the one part of it that I am sometimes eh on, but I guess it was a compromise for not having serifs. But at least they retained their original logo personality, while effectively refining and simplifying it.
Hell if they at least retained some form of the "bowl n loop" style little "g" it would look way better.
I would have done something more like that I think...
I do not think that any of you guys would come up with the idea of creating a logo along with the multi colored G as small logo and the dots as indication for something loading etc. within 10 minutes. Don't be delusional please.
It's already perfect, my only complaint is that the font chosen is way too much on this whole lobotomized consumer shit. I guess my problem with it is the ideology that it represents instead of any sort of technicality or execution. It reminds me way too much that everyone is gradually turning into a baby.
the "G" is way too big; i scaled it down by 90%.
i want to point this out to google so they fix it!
I agree. I mean it does stand out from the rest, but so does Google. It worked great as favi icons, though I can understand why they use the big G now. It would display better on smaller screens.
That oddly looks good. Maybe thats what made the new logo shit. >>232471 yes.
I like it, but flip the line connecting the two circles to the left side. It looks too much like classes.
just use some less extreme angles and i love it
yeah that does look better.
i don't know why i went with such extreme angles.
fixed the g
I went with one of google's original idea and just expanded it, thoughts?
The "G" is way too close to "o". It's too stiff overall, increase the distance between the letters to relax it a bit.
The "L" is too thin and because of it feels out of place.
All in all, a worse take on google's idea, but I like the G.
Google's new logo/branding is a good solve for the kinds of problems and issues that most people here don't even realize are problems and issues in the first place.
As an initial hater, it's grown on me - it's still very much Google... just sans serifs and a beat more consistent across the board. And works well with animations and a large variety of spaces.
Too much fucking clutter, people aren't gonna stand around and read a fucking logo
Who the fuck needs logos, you use Google to search for things, not look at some fucking pictures.
this one looks pretty good imo
i love everyone accept for the middle one
the g looks alright on its own but the whole font is horrible and doesnt represent their 'playful and fun' image
i love the icon on the right though
I like this, but I think the ring of the G needs to be adjusted where it curves more sharply inward so it doesn't look so thick, and the bar should be the same thickness as the bars of the E or L.
The yellow is way too saturated and that brown/green looks like vomit.
sorry for being late guys here's my amazing innovation
I've seen this bullshit somewhere...
THE FUCKING KERNING
MFW Probably gonna be at least ten years before this "fllat" design fad die
