What is the significance of the logo of Google colors? Why did they choose to have one green, one yellow, two blue, and two red?
Don’t the question juggles your mind also?
As we all know that Google is famous for changing the logo on its website’ homepage on a frequent basis. It is an impression of current events and important dates in the history. The primary logo has been changed quite a few times over the past years. Since the first logo of Google was given by Sergey Brin using GIMP.
So much input is required to be there in the design of a good logo. Google knew this when they designed their logo. Therefore, they invested much more attention towards choosing the right colors that would attract our eyes, be pleasing and would depict the vision of the company.
They proved that by choosing the simple scheme of colors also, their design can be effective yet captious. They succeeded in their required goal.
According to some people, it is a logical and mathematical reason behind it. But there is always a contradict as some say it’s just the matter of randomness.
Let us look on Google has modified its logo since 1999 until now.
- They used different colors for each even position and repeated it for the odd.
This may sound freakish, but there is a theory that colors are assigned to letters according to which their positions represent an even number or an odd one. Letters number 1, 2, 3 and 5 or an “odd” color assigned are- Blue, Red, Yellow, and Green. And letters which are assigned the numbers 4 and 6 or “even numbers” repeat colors in the same order that colors were designated for the first time: Blue and then Red.
- They started with primary colors only:
The primary colors which we follow in designing and arts are- blue, red, yellow which was also followed by Google. But under the process of developing software, they switched to color scale which is RGB i.e Red, Green, Blue.
In the end, they just mixed the primary colors of light and paints used in art and designing.
And finally, the combination was following the pattern mentioned above also-
“Letters number 1, 2, 3 and 5 or “odd” color assigned are– Blue, Red, Yellow, and Green.”
“And letters which are assigned the numbers 4 and 6 or “even numbers” repeat colors in the same order that colors were designated for the first time: Blue and then Red.”
G = blue
