Alternative Google Logos and Perspectives


People seem to dislike Google's logo for Valentine's Day. They say it reads Googe, as if the strawberry's stem is non-existent. Here are some alternatives for these people:

* Alternative Google logos - a big list of fake Google logos. Some of them are funny or not-safe-for-work, others are meaningful, while few of them are just brilliant. The collection includes Philipp Lenssen's rejected Google holiday logos and the designs from Tolkien Google logo petition.

* Logoogle - a lot of Google logos designed by Google fans.

* If Google owned everything is a visual challenge: how would our life look in a Google world?

And here's an alternative perspective for Valentine's Day: a "happy unimaginative consumerist-oriented and entirely arbitrary, manipulative and shallow interpretation of romance day."

So next time you buy a product or an idea, think about it with your own personal mind. Draw your own conclusions if Google's logo is silly, if Google is evil, if Valentine's Day is a celebration of consumerism. I think we should celebrate more often the day when you think for yourself.
