Google Makes Its New Flat Logo And “App Launcher” Style Nav Menu Official, Will Roll Out Over The Next Few Weeks


Gone is the black bar that runs atop all of Google’s properties. It’s now been replaced with a new menu that sits next to the Share and account info. The launcher, which looks just like the app launcher on Chrome OS, brings up an App grid with your favorite Google services.

...

We'll have to wait and see if Google will post a Yahoo-like explanation of the design process behind the flatter logo, but here is what the company had to say about it so far: “As part of this design, we’ve also refined the color palette and letter shapes of the Google logo.” That’s it.

Flatten ALL THE THINGS!

Seriously though? Apple decides flat is in with iOS7 and Google jumps right on the bandwagon. Never thought I'd see the day where websites were a fashion statement, but ... that day is here apparently. "Flat is so IN right now!"

Funny how that contrasts with Yahoo's logo, which has always been flat until they recently added some bevel.

Personally I hate the 'flat' look. We have Apple changing the ios (which I really dislike by the way), Googles logo, bootstrap has been extremely popular with people to pump out quick sites and is flat by default, Windows... what is next?

Are we going back in time or something? I get that we should be using css for everything these days compared to actual images, but c'mon people... we have tons of abilities in css now to get rid of FLAT and now it's like people don't want to use them all of a sudden after years or complaining about adding the abilities haha.

Well.... remember how Google copied Apple's iPhone? Monkey see, monkey do. Or, buy out all competitors... :-)

I installed iOS7 yesterday, I'm not really liking this trend to go flat ("2D" as I like to call it LOL). It's a bit more boring really.
