History of the Google Logo Back In The Olden Days

Google’s logo has changed very little over the years, but the History Of The Google Logo has changed to celebrate holidays and recognize various events.

Google launched in 1998, but LogoMyWay has wondered just what the company’s logo would have looked like in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s had they been around. Which special occasions and events would Google have celebrated by updating their logo?

LogoMyWay’s top designers were given the task of creating what they imagined the Google logo would have looked like through History. What they came up with is brilliant and creative. Enjoy!

If you need a new logo take a look at the LogoMyWay Logo Creator. You can make your own logo in less than 10 minutes and select from thousands of logo designs.
