New Google Logo Color and Search Page Design

Inspiration

I was searching for game reviews when I kinda noticed something different about Google’s logo, search buttons and text colors. I ignored them at first, thinking my eyes were playing tricks on me and anyway, it was like already 2 o’clock in the morning. I continued doing my stuff but the designer in me just wasn’t at ease so I re-visited Google’s home page (www.google.com) and found that yes indeed the color of Google’s logo has changed to a softer and more pleasant tone. Also, the links on Google.com are now in a better blue color – I had been wondering too, why Google was keeping their old flat, silly blue, and also the red, yellow and green colors in their logo.

I also noticed they removed the small trademark sign (TM) on the top right of their huge logo. Some other stuff they changed are the ‘Google Search’ and ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ buttons – changed to neater and sharped edged buttons with a softer custom metallic background.

The search text field too, had a share in the change, with a touch of a soft shadow behind it, and a bold font style for the search query text substituted the normal one they had previously.

And if you notice, the 2 buttons (‘Google Search’ and ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’) are now added to the ’suggested keywords’ drop down list, at the bottom.

Well, I just felt the itch to say something about the new Google interface, that’s all. ;-)
