GOOGLE has one of the most recognizable logos in the world – this is how it came to be.
Since the first time Google The logo was created in 1997, it features an eye-catching design that has become synonymous with the company’s innovative contributions to the technology industry.
When Sergey Brin and Larry Page first founded Google in 1995, it was originally called “Backrub”.
Two years later, Backrub transformed into Google, a company that would soon revolutionize the Internet.
Since rebranding in 1997, the tech giant has gone through seven variations of its logo.
And while the font may have changed, all logos maintain a fairly similar color scheme.
First logo – 1998
The first “official” version of the Google logo was created by Page using a free graphics program called GIMP.
The design introduces the concept of mixed colors that will be carried over to future designs, however, the color arrangement is quite different from the current logo.
In Page’s logo, using the font “Baskerville Bold”, the initial “G” is green.
At one point, the logo also featured an exclamation mark similar to that of Yahoo, the largest internet site at the time.
Main logo – 1999 to 2015
Google changed the logo again in 1999, and that version would become the popular version most people think of today.
Ruth Kadar has been brought on as lead graphic designer and her design base will last until 2015.
Kadar’s logo, in Catull typeface (with slightly raised shadows), removes the exclamation mark and switches to a color arrangement, with the original “G” changing to blue.
When asked about color choices, Kadar said: “There is a lot of different color repetition. We ended up with the primary colors, but instead of letting the pattern go in order, we put a secondary color on the ‘L’, which gave rise to the idea that Google wasn’t following the rules. “
Later versions of the logo are still quite similar to Kadar’s original design, only with slight font variations.
In one version, the shading was removed from the letters.
And in the current logo, released on September 1, 2015, the typeface has switched to a more modern font called Product Sans, which was actually created at Google.
