If you have ever designed a logo, webpage, poster, or magazine layout you know that choosing the correct font in accordance to your design is very very important.

Fonts are like people; they have personalities. A well chosen font combined with color and good design has the ability to invoke a feeling. I could break this down a million ways for you and write many pages to this post but instead, I want you to do an exercise for yourself. Whenever you’re out to the movies or in Time Square, at the Mall or even reading a magazine, take a moment to stop and really look at the design.

We often see the Google logo displayed with designs celebrating various current events, but never an interactive page such as this. Check out some of the past Google Logo Designs on inspirationfeed.com.

Today the Google page displays a huge interactive zipper and the actual logo looks like it is sewn fabric. Click and drag the zipper and you will see a really cool animation of the page being zipped away to reveal the search results page. This design is to commemorate the 132nd birthday of Gideon Sunback, a Swedish engineer credited with helping to develop the modern zipper.
