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.

    Speaking of Google+, when will the +1 icon be appearing on this website?

    I came across an article the previous day and thought that it would be nice to share out with a certain circle of friends.

    I sense a new G+ custom desktop….

    Time to mess with rainmeter again!

  5. Deo Domuique

    I’d really like Personas for Firefox to match with each Wallpaper.

    But, I really don’t get it… Why all these about Google+ ? Why all that promotion from each site? I can really understand if Google does an aggressive campaign and pays each site… Otherwise, it’s unexplainable so much craziness.

    We need a +1 button

    @Linux_user-001 & Jorge Figueroa – No worries, those +1 buttons will be coming soon. ~_^
