Who designed the Gmail logo?

Dennis Hwang designed the Gmail logo.
At the time, Dennis designed virtually all of the Google doodles and a lot of the new logo work as well.

The logo was designed literally the night before the product launched.

The initial version used the same font as the Google logo (Catull),
But Catull has a very awkward 'a',
So Dennis decided to use Catull for the 'G' to tie the brand to Google,
then cast the others in a cleaner sans-serif (Myriad Pro, if I recall correctly).
