Today is Valentine’s Day and Google has done up a fancy new logo to celebrate. This year, the logo is very clearly based on the infamous design of Robert Indiana, who was a famous artist during the Pop Art movement of the 60s and 70s. He first designed the image seen in Google’s 2011 Valentine’s logo in 1964. The design originally spelled out the word “LOVE” and was used for a Christmas card of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
For this year’s Valentine’s Day, Google’s Logo is an homage to that iconic design of “LOVE” but using the letters that spell “Google.” Which also means love. If you love Google.
Here are some of Google's past Valentine's Day logos, although I think they all pale in comparison to this year's logo.
