    Thank you. From all of us who are stuck for a specific image / look / feel at any point in our work / art. And you've inspired me to do the same with the thousands lying around idly on my hard-drives.

    In view of all designers going buts with the grid of the G, I think this is also a relevant discussion. Why throw away something with more character and potential in favour of a bland mono-line me-too logotype?

  • Posted to Google "G" logo is wonky, in reply to Toby Keller , Sep 02, 2015

    I disagree that the colors are mirrored. In fact, the ratio of the colors are reminiscent of the original logo (though they do seem to have increased the amount of green!). In this configuration: + The yellow also kind of leads into the rest of the logo, drawing your eye from left to right. + Its brightness does not overpower the other colors. + If the colors were in the same ratio it would totally remind me of the Windows logo! + I do think the G works better with the original terminal angle. With the chopped one it looks incomplete, as if the cut is oblique to the stroke. + The G works in monochrome as well, as also in combination with the other letters.

    I like the last variant you posted, but the yellow and blue seem unbalanced. Something they totally nailed in the original.

    Even the bar of the G, if you noticed, is not exactly aligned to the center of that angle formed by those diagonals. That's because they've separated the form from the decoration, the shape from the colors. In type, the form is often judged by eye and is not necessarily geometrically perfect. In fact, in most cases it isn't! It just appears to be and that's all that matters :)

    Or just set font-size to 0. That takes away the spaces. And you would of course then need to reset the font-sizes within the blocks.

    Export the InDesign document to PDF. And then Open it in Sketch. Sketch doesn't have the best or clearest of import options sadly, but this should work.

    • Pictures will be cropped to boundaries, and each line of a text-frame would be split into its own separate text box.
    • EPS assets copy / pasted from Illustrator into InDesign or inserted into InDesign from a file would change groupings without any logic.
    • Font-settings and styling are maintained pretty well, however. So that's good :)

    I'm sure others would have more to say, but this seemed to me to be the simplest.

    Well truly, its never about the tool. Use whatever you're comfortable with. For best results mix them all up! Each toolset has its own strengths and weaknesses.

    Personally, I prefer working across Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Sketch (plus other front-end command-line tools!).

    Of course, if you try really hard, you can bend a tool to do what you want it to e.g. simply fill a shape with a picture to simulate basic cropping in Sketch.
