Submitting ideas for Google new favicon isn’t easy, besides that Google logo has been very close to everyone’s heart and mind along these years, also because I didn’t get used to design in such small size. Some designs looks good in minimum 64×64 pixels but once I turn it into standard 16×16 size for favicon, even I myself can’t barely recognize what it is.
Finally I only submit two ideas for Google favicon. These two came from the same idea, adapting the original Google favicon form and combine the whole colors identical to Google, to be the background or be the inside color of the ‘G’ itself. It is made very simple to be easily recognized and remembered.
Changing logo, as the new identity of a brand will always cause a huge wave at first either likeness or dislikes. But as time goes by, as people’s mind and heart get used to it, a majority group between the two responses will automatically formed. Most of the time people get used to it and getting comfortable with the new one. This dillematic circle of responses will continue as the logo being re-designed in the future.
