Meaning and history

It is interesting, that the service, created by Google in 2000, got its emblem designed only in 2018. Before that, the visual identity of the platform was completely text-based and has no additional features which could make it stand out from the list of all other Google products.

2000 — 2010

The original logo was composed of an enlarged Google logotype with three-dimensional colorful letters and a delicate gray shadow. The “AdWords” inscription was executed in small gray sans-serif lettering and placed under the main nameplate, like a simple tagline.

2010 — 2015

Only in 2010 the “AdWords” part was moved near the “Google” and became really visible. While the corporate logotype was still drab with a 3D effect, the second part of the wordmark featured a very modest and strict sans-serif font, with thin narrow letters. The color was still the same – gray.

In 2015 Google redesigned its corporate style, so the AdWords logo was also changed. Now the gray inscription gained bolder and more confident lines and the “Google” part of the logo featured the same strict and clean sans-serif typeface, but had ticket lines and was still written in different colors.

2018 — Today
