The Google logo is a very simple logo made up of a simple font and some basic colors. It seems almost amateurish. The simplicity of the logo could possible represent the simplicity of the search engine. There are numerous debates/discussions on the web about the google logo. One discussion centered around the two O's in Google, representing infinity.

The logo was designed by Ruth Kedar.  The logotype is based on the Catull typeface

Every once in a while, you will see the Google logo change to represent a current topic  e.g The Olympics, World Cup etc. These logos are called Google doodles. The doodles are currently created by Dennis Hwang and he has created over 150 doodles since he started working at Google. Apparently, the first doodle was produced by the founders Larry and Sergey. The logo was created when they attended the Burning Man festival in summer 1999. They put a little stick figure on the home page logo in case the site crashed and someone wanted to know why nobody  was answering the phone.

For more on the doodles, visit the official Doodle page.
