Did you notice it?

 

Gmail Logo Before

Gmail Logo After

I guess everyone is using Gmail. But did you ever notice it? Last month Gmail updated its logo for a little bit. The biggest change is the “m.” It gets wider and bigger so the mail is more emphasized. In addition to that, the tm mark on Gmail is smaller. “By Google” is moved to the right and the space around it is increased. The other tiny tm mark on Google is taken out. The harsh light and shadow is ridden off and the lighting effect is gentler. They also make the letters slightly 3D. The logo looks more polished and the space is more reasonable. So yes it is better. Google’s design updates are always subtle. But a little better is better.
