The favicon is actualy choosen from the Google favicon contest. The latest icon is from a contestor name André Resende. He is a computer science undergraduate student at the University of Campinas in Brazil, submitted the design that inspired Google new favicon. His placement of a white ‘g’ on a color-blocked background was highly recognizable and attractive, while seeming to capture the essence of Google.


But the final favicon is slightly difference from the original design by André Resende. Google has change the layout slightly and moved the ‘g’ off center.

The new design consists of four color areas – blue, red, green and yellow – overlaid by a lowercase white “g”.
