Is this good graphic design?
>>
Yes

what are all these lines drawn into the image trying to demonstrate?

How well thought the design is, of course. It's giving an idea of how bad it could look if made by a beginner in accordance to lines.

The logo makes sense from a typography perspective. Making it a perfect circle would make the G look far too wide optically. The strokes being different widths is a bit strange though, and I can't think of a reason they wouldn't be uniform as they're both horizontal.

The search bar also makes sense, as the text itself is centered. Pic related.

I unironically like it

If the secret to "good design" was drawing perfect circles and using exact linear proportions, anyone could do it, and everything would look the same.

You are confusing style for imperfections, and frankly, I feel a little embarrassed for you. This is a community college-level analysis.

What letter is this supposed to be? I'm actually confused.

>>369589
Where can I download this autistically wonderful font?
>>

I agree, the imperfections are what makes it look more like a character and less like a circle with a line through it.

>>369570
I also want to point out how retarded it is that whoever did this doesn’t get why the cursor position is off centered.

It's pretty meh tier but its Google so some people are going to defend it

Have you ever heard of anti-aliasing?
>>
>>369764
it's some drafts for Futura. typeface made so that the shapes adhere simple geometric grid as much as possible and with later adjustments made sanely readable.
digital versions tend to include the weird ones as alternate glyphs.
