Doodles are Google easter eggs that changes the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. Some of these doodles can be very basic, in linking to the history or context of an individual/event, to more interactive doodles that can trigger flash animations, and other flash based programs, like a guitar. Due to popular demand, an archive has been created to display and access past google doodles, as well as grant individuals to buy said logos that are placed on items such as T-shirts and Coffee mugs.
In 1998, before the company was even incorporated, the concept of the 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.
While some google doodles gain noteriety for a brief period of time, some doodles can have a brief extended period of popularity. Most popular google doodles in the past have been the Google Guitar, and a playable game of Pac-Man in the shape of the Google logo.
