I don't like the new logos: they use so much space.

translate.google.com/

new:


google.com/intl/en/images/logo ...

– 205px × 40px

old:


google.com/intl/en/images/tran ...

– 150px × 55px

But everyone knows where the name of the product goes on the Google logo now anyway!

How many of the new style are live now? So far I've seen Translate and Video (Now officially called Google Video Search) Docs/Reader don't count as they start with a capital letter where as the new design doesn't

I don't think so. The "t" and the "e" look different to me.

The logo from Google Video's homepage reads "Google Video Search", while the logo used for search results pages is a bit different "Google Videos". Consistency, please!

Maybe the "Beta" tag will disappear from many Google services when they roll these new logos out??

Here's another Google Code logo:


code.google.com/images/code_lo ...



Not too consistent yet....

Oh, the other Code logo is for Google Code Search (Labs)...

It also could be Helvetica light.

I've tried to find al the logo's from all the products and almost everything is ready, except a few like the Google Translation Center.

Strangely I found Google Knol to remove the word Google completely from their logo....

knol.google.com/k


knol.google.com/k/knol/_/rsrc/ ...



I think that is strange... :)

Google Youtube?

Knol.

Who used it once in the past 2 months?

(And the homepage, what a nice design!)

I use it once, to make a joke, some months ago.
The page is still not indexed by Google...

Wow, had forgotten about knol! It looks great!

I think the new format doesn't work well for long names like Google Product Search. The logo pushes the search box to the right and it doesn't look consistent.

I'm wondering who it looks like on mobile phones. you might have to move/scroll screen to find the search box.

I actually think that looks quite nice Ionut!

The font was designed specifically for Google by Hoefler_&_Frere-Jones | typography.com/home/index.php? ... of New York City and will not be licensed out, nor does it have a public name... It's a pity, but at least it will make Google's logo more noticeable if nobody else is allowed to use it.

A similar font on my mac is "ITC Franklin Gothic LT Book Condensed Regular". Here is a side-by-side I made (Google's on top), they aren't really the same but it's the best of the fonts I have. It's a little heavy, but there was no lighter version in the font book, I think they would have looked more similar if there was, perhaps one can buy it online.
