I know everyone has noticed the fun and festive “doodle” that appear on the Google search pages around holidays. But sometimes there are some for important people’s birthdays, interesting days in history and more. Google’s Doodles have gotten so popular through out the years that they have a special team of Illustrators in charge of choosing dates and designing the work.
The first time one of these doodles was done was in 1998, before Google was even huge, to indicate that the founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, were out of the office for the Burning Man festival. The doodle was a simple drawing of a man behind the second “o” in the logo.
Today the doodles are so advanced that you can click on them and it will take you to a Google search page of what the doodle indicates. Some play music. Some move. And some are just plain fun. If you haven’t noticed these doodles because you’re blind, or maybe you “never get on the computer” (which we both know to be a lie because you’re reading this), then you can check out many of the doodles through out their history here: at the Google-Doodle Website
Below are some of my favorites! But to find out what they symbolize, you have to go check out the site! Happy Doodling 🙂
Unlike most people, I don’t find much advertising that annoying. I can watch commercials, I don’t mind website banners, I actually really love print. But this is just beyond anything like that. This new family board game, which came out last year, revolves around certain brand name logos. People thought they could get away from advertising by having DVR, by creating pop up blockers, but now one of the ultimate versions of advertising has moved into our entertainment block. Not only that, but the families that do purchase this will end up creating brand loyalty in their children and maybe even themselves through recognition without even realizing it. Depending on how popular or successful this is, we will probably start to see advertising emerging from different mediums. And what’s wrong with that? Nothing! Cause that means that me and people like me will always have a job! Go advertising!
