Google Chrome gets a new logo after 8 years. Elvin Hu, a designer for Google Chrome, offers a first look at the logo`s redesign in a thread on Twitter. The icon has been simplified/flattened by removing the shadows. The colors are brighter and the proportions are different, making the big blue ball in the middle noticeably bigger.
Google also is tweaking it further with different variations designed to look more at home on Windows, macOS, and iOS. The color scheme has not really been switched, with red, blue, green, and yellow still being the primary colors, but the saturation has been upped a little, and shadows have been ditched. All in all, the new logo looks largely unchanged but does appear more lively.
From 2008 until now, the Chrome logo has been getting gradually simpler. What started out as a shiny, three-dimensional emblem has been squashed down into a 2D symbol of modernity.
What are the changes in Google Chrome’s new logo?
A designer for Google Chrome, Elvin Hu has uploaded the new Google Chrome logo on Twitter. In his post, the designer has placed all the previous Google Chrome logo’s along with the new one, to make it easier for the viewers to see the differences.
- As highlighted by Elvin Hu, one of the designers at Google Chrome, the new brand logo does not have shadows
- The four colors used in the logo – red, green, yellow, and blue are brighter than before
- The new logo contains a gradient in the red color to eliminate an unpleasant color vibration
- The logo has been customized for different operating systems, including Windows and macOS.
There are also some new icons for the beta and developer versions of the Chrome logo, with the most dramatic change being a blueprint-style icon for the beta app on iOS. Hu also notes that the design team experimented with a white line that serves as the border between each color, but found that this made the overall icon smaller, potentially making it harder to recognize among other Google apps.
