Google has spruced up its logo in the biggest change in 17 years.
It’s the fifth redesign for the logo – and the biggest, built to take Google from being a desktop PC service into something that works on phones and watches.
The revamped logo is being shown off as a Google Doodle, and features a new font called Product Sans, which looks vaguely primary school-esque.
The compact version of the logo, used in the apps, bids farewell to the little blue “g” icon and replaces it with an uppercase “G” colored in blue, red, yellow and green to match the full logo
We think we’ve taken the best of Google (simple, uncluttered, colorful, friendly), and recast it not just for the Google of today, but for the Google of the future,’ says Google
