The Google Logos’ Reject Shop

'

Google LogoI am sure that everyone knows about Google Holiday Logos, which temporarily replace Google’s official logo on a particular day purposely to remember a special holiday or event.

I am not going to show you the “approved version” of the logos, instead I’m showing you the logos which didn’t make it as the proud members of the Google Holiday Logos. So let us take a look of these rejected logos.

Well, all the 10 so called “rejected Google logos” are actually fake ones created by someone ( which also I don’t know). The actual man behind designing of the Google logos is Dennis Hwang and all the previous Google Holiday Logos is stored here inside the Museum of Google’s Holiday Logos. Have a nice day! 🙂
