Google Font Logo Creator

Since the font used for the Google logo is a non-free commercial offering, we decided to go with something a bit different for fun. You can make your own Google style logo image using the Google Logo Generator Website.

Just enter the desired text in the text box and click Create. If you are not pleased with the colors some of the letters have just click the Create Button again to see the colors change. When you are finished you can save your new logo using the Download Link, right clicking and selecting Save As, or copying the image to your favorite photo program.

*saved images are in .gif format

Note: You can learn more about the Catull font used for Google’s logo at Wikipedia (Article #1 and Article #2).

We used a small amount of photo editing to split the logo into two lines of text after saving the original image to our hard-drive.
