You should probably be tired of reading about Chrome here at Google Discovery, at MacMagazine, at the Internet generation and even (pause for breathing) in Brogui. Anyway, I have great news for you: this is another post about Chrome and it probably won’t be the last. =)
Among so many details of Chrome one caught a lot of attention: the logo. Many people tried to find the answers about possible Google inspirations to create it, below is a compilation of the possible emotional and visual factors that may have entered the Google team’s ideas spreadsheet.
Was it based on the Thinkfree Office logo?
Although it is not the official Thinkfree logo, this visual art appears in the application installation window.
Based on the Rede Record logo?
Ian Black also made his attempt. It will be?
For sure with Pokemon elements:An attempt made by the user Cole h on Flickr.
Or a mixture of elements?
Philipp Lenssen from Blogoscoped too tried to imagine possible influences.
Perhaps the Windows logo is the final answer:
Imagined by Harry McCracken.
