Google's bold new Gmail logo pushes the envelope

From Photos to Maps, Google has been busy updating the logos for several of its G Suite apps this year. And now it seems one of its most popular services could be in for a design overhaul: Gmail.

The company has revealed a technical drawing depicting the app's 'M' logo, along with angle and line markers. The letter itself is thicker and more rounded than the current iteration, but the most obvious change is the apparent removal of the icon's signature envelope behind it. While we're yet to see the concept come to fruition, the drawing suggests the new design, like many of our best logos, will be a clean and minimal affair.
