This might have been covered elsewhere, but we haven’t been able to find it if so – so apologies if this is old news to anyone. Majorly interesting stuff though regardless – read on!

A new Google logo and interface is on its way. Rory was looking through his referrer logs when he discovered an unusual number of visits from an IP address. Following it revealed that it was a Google datacentre. Nothing unusual there, but when he started searching using it? Well – check this out:

New Google Homepage and Logo

The first thing is the new logo – a subtle evolution from the traditional logo we know and love… a much subtler treatment of the drop shadow and a hint of gloss. Much tidier and more modern than the current logo. This seems to be a step on from the changes that surfaced for some people back in November last year but is more complete (and striking?)

Inside, there’s a host of new stuff – quite dramatic changes including a new sidebar treatment and a little feature called “this result is not unlike…” which lists related sites and/or searches. Here’s a video capture which highlights some of the most obvious new features.

We’ve already got some thoughts on the impact of these changes – watch out for an update in full when we’ve had time to write them up. Enjoy!
