Google Doodles

Google Doodles, as you most likely already know are the ever changing Google pictures or animated GIFs on the Google landing page, basically the Google logo.

Google chose to make their landing page and their logo an opportunity to feature a famous person, a scientist, musician, politician, humanist, designer, artist, or other famous person. It is worth looking at Google Trends for Trending Google Doodles for a year or to simply do a Google search and discover an interactive Google Doodle with an animation and information about an inspiring person.

The Pac-Man Doodle was amazing; it featured a playable Pac-Man game for the 30th anniversary of Toru Iwatani’ game in May 2010. You actually have to click on an “Insert Coin” button. 🙂

Some Google Doodles are released for certain countries and celebrating events and famous individuals of their culture and then are also some world events that get featured, as the Football World Cup. The GIF below looks at the semi-final encounter between Brasil and Germany.
