Say hello to the brand new Google logo

Google has just unveiled a brand new logo.

In place of its old serif typeface, Google has now adopted a smooth, rounded sans serif font.

The colours have also been dulled a little. In fact, the logo looks in keeping with Google’s ‘material design’ Android 5.0 Lollipop aesthetic.

Google revealed the new logo in a Google doodle on its web-search home-page, where a disembodied hand scrubs out the old branding, to be replaced by the new one.

The company has even created a YouTube video showing how Google has evolved over the ages.

“Google has change a lot over the past 17 years,” explains the search engine giant. “From the range of our products to the evolution of their look and feel.”

It continues: “And today we’re changing things up once again.”

This move comes just one month after a huge reworking of the company that saw Google fall under a newly-created parent company called Alphabet.

It’s likely that this new logo is part of the overarching revamp.
