In a change that happened overnight, Google has officially updated its logo in one of the most significant ways since May of 1999.
The logo still retains its iconic colours, but its typeface has completely changed and the colours themselves have been softened. The new typeface is a tailor-made sans-serif font called Products Sans. Along with the changes to its wordmark logo, Google is also retiring the standalone lowercase 'g' that accompanied many of its products (Google+, Google Maps, etc.) and replacing it with an uppercase 'G'.
