Product Sans is a geometric sans-serif typeface created by Google for branding purposes. It replaced the old Google logo on September 1, 2015. As Google’s branding was becoming more apparent on a multitude of devices, Google sought to adapt its design so that its logo could be portrayed in constrained spaces and remain consistent for its users across platforms.
Product Sans was created from scratch to pair seamlessly with our logo in a variety of contexts and product lockups without overshadowing it. Additionally, it complements the new identity by introducing a primary branding typeface that is different in style and character from other interface text elements used in Material Design. With its careful weaving of form and function, it is an appropriate and essential component to the Google brand system.
