Top Google Logos 1998 – 2000

Technology | 25 Oct, 2010 |

About Google’s Logo Doodle collection from 1997 – 2000.

Google has had several logos since its renaming from BackRub. The longest running official Google logo was designed by Ruth Kedar, and is a wordmark based on the Catull typeface.  “There were a lot of different color iterations,” Kedar says. “We ended up with the primary colors, but instead of having the pattern go in order, we put a secondary color on the L, which brought back the idea that Google doesn’t follow the rules.”

In 1998 Sergey Brin created a computerized version of the Google letters using the free graphics program GIMP. These special logos, some designed by Dennis Hwang, have become known as Google Doodles. As of 27 September 2010, Google’s own gallery features 913 logos.
