Google’s got a new look

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Google unveiled a newly designed logo on Tuesday in preparation to become part of a new holding company called Alphabet.

The revision of their famous logo features the same mix of blue, red, yellow and green that Google has been using throughout its nearly 17-year history, though the hues are slightly different.

Google changed their front too. They invented a new typeface called “Product Sans” that is meant to resemble the simple printing in a grade-school book.

The appearance of the letter “g” that Google uses as its shorthand logo on the smaller screens of smartphones and other mobile devices will also see some changes. The “g” will now be capitalized and displayed in color instead of being kept lowercase and white.

Google last tweaked its logo in 2013.
