I never really go on the the Google homepage anymore since getting Chrome. Apparently the saving of bandwidth that google get from people not going to the homepage is massive btw.

the smart search bar is great, saves so much time

The first google doodle was for Burning Man, when the two founders were going to it.

Google's new logo

www.google.co.uk/webhp...

0 |

I like it

0 |

I love the uppercase "G" on its own, and the way it all animates, but I'm not that fond of the full Google logo. The yellow 'o' has a tendency to disappear a bit on white backgrounds, and it very much bothers me that the 'o' and 'e' are properly circular, while the 'g' is not.

What monitors/screens have you been noticing the yellow disappear on, Matthew? Seems pretty vibrant for me, even on white.

0 |

Matthew, I wish you hadn't pointed out the G.

Did they really "design" a logo though? If I pick a font, and type a word, is that designing a logo?

0 |

Yeah they did, I mean it's not a standard font to start with, so they had to take one and modify it. And then they had to work out the exact colours to use (they're slightly different from the previous version). Then there's all the variants like the solo "G" icon, and all the usage applications etc. It's a substantial task.

0 |

I'd say a lot of design and time went into the logo. Plenty of tiny tweaks that may seem insignificant to us but took time and money

0 |

I wonder if they'll eventually truncate it to the single G.

0 |

i like it. better than the old one.

Matthew clearly a microsoft fanboi. Rippin on googles new g ffs
