The concept of the Google Doodle was born when Google founders Larry and Sergey played with the corporate logo to indicate their attendance at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert. They placed a stick figure drawing behind the 2nd “o” in the word Google, and the revised logo was intended as a comical message to Google users that the founders were “out of office”. While the first doodle was relatively simple, the idea of decorating the company logo to celebrate notable events was born.
Google’s “doodle designers” have created over 1000 doodles for homepages around the world. Google logos are fun, surprising and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists. I have compiled a list of my top ten interesting Google logos.
