If you look you’ll find a new design for Google’s ubiquitous logo, one that probably shouldn’t have seen the light of day this early. With all the talk about new logos lately, it’s about time Google did a little revamping of its own.
Here’s a comparison image:
It’s flat! All the beveling and shadows are gone, and the colors have been tweaked from their traditional primary color pallet to more muted shades. The result is a cleaner, more modern design that seems to be the complete opposite of the recent Yahoo disaster. You can also spot this logo on Google’s servers. However, the normal logo is on Google.com.
So we know this new logo exists and that it is officially from Google, but we don’t know if it will be used company-wide. It would certainly make sense for Google to roll it out for everything, because this looks about a million times better than the current logo. If this goes live, it would become the company’s first logo redesign since 2010, when it toned down the shadowing and brightened up the colors. That design was also tested before it went live.
As for this new design, we’ll just have to wait to see if Google adopts it across its properties. Let’s hope.
