For my first assignment, I decided to remake a popular logo in a different font.

I went with possibly the most well-known text-based logo on the planet: Google. In choosing Google, one thing I didn’t originally account for was their use of proprietary font (something called Product Sans, which is not available to the public). This didn’t appear as a design hiccup, more a curiosity of choosing this company.
I used Photoshop to accomplish this font switch, sampling colors from the original logo and typing them into a text box in Photoshop.
