Doodles are the 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.
In 2013, Google, for the first time in its history, posted a special Doodle for Bangladesh on its Independence Day. ALSO READ: Google doodle celebrating Bangladesh Independence Day
Named ‘Bangladesh Independence Day 2013’, the Doodle was posted on Google homepage just minute after midnight on March 26.
The Doodle shows a child, wearing a T-shirt and shorts and holding a
small flag in his hand, walking with his parents. While the mother wears
a saree, the father, in red panjabi and white trousers, is also holding
a flag. How did the idea for doodles originate?
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.
Two years later in 2000, Larry and Sergey asked current webmaster
Dennis Hwang, an intern at the time, to produce a doodle for Bastille
Day. It was so well received by our users that Dennis was appointed
Google's chief doodler and doodles started showing up more and more
regularly on the Google homepage. In the beginning, the doodles mostly
celebrated familiar holidays; nowadays, they highlight a wide array of
events and anniversaries from the Birthday of John James Audubon to the
Ice Cream Sundae.
Over time, the demand for doodles has risen in the US and
internationally. Creating doodles is now the responsibility of a team of
talented illustrators, called doodlers, and engineers. For them,
creating doodles has become a group effort to enliven the Google
homepage and bring smiles to the faces of Google users around the world. How many doodles has Google done over the years?
The team has created over 1000 doodles for our homepages around the world. Who chooses what doodles will be created and how do you decide which events will receive doodles?
A group of Googlers get together regularly to brainstorm and decide
which events will be celebrated with a doodle. The ideas for the doodles
come from numerous sources including Googlers and Google users. The
doodle selection process aims to celebrate interesting events and
anniversaries that reflect Google's personality and love for innovation. Who designs the doodles?
There is a team of illustrators and engineers that are behind each and every doodle posted on Google. How can Google users/the public submit ideas for doodles?
The doodle team is always excited to hear ideas from users with ideas for the next Google doodle. The team receives hundreds of requests every day.
