How the Google Chrome logo was made, from 9GAG. (Google Chrome is a new web browser for Windows. Has anyone out there given it a shot? The Mac version is apparently in development.)
A great piece of digital graphics, no doubt, but am I the only one who finds this video creepy? It’s like some corporate robot trained to spy on us, which doesn’t give an impression I’d want from a web browser.
When starting a project many designers will inevitably experiment with monograms. The combining of two or more letters appears like an easy way out, and in most cases it is, but the most imaginative interpretations leave us with some appropriate and distinctive logos. A few I like:
The Brand New readers have been fairly vocal about the horizontal scaling, with 220+ comments last I checked.
Perhaps — a little like my cat allergy — search engine teams are just as reluctant to get close to graphic designers (my other half is again talking about adopting a cat after our previous attempt lasted just two months).
Does the Chrome logo spin your cogs? And has Bing outdone Google in the iconic logo department?
