Another reason Google rocks

Google is celebrating the first day of summer with a logo enhanced by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, of whom I've long been a fan. I have to give it up to Google for brightening my days with the enhanced logos. Recently Google had a series of illustrations intertwined with the logo by Roger Hargreaves, creator of the delightful Mr. Men and Little Miss books for kids.

Google occasionally gets interactive--such as marking the birthday of Les Paul with a strummable guitar graphic and commemorating Jacques Cousteau with a changeable view through the portholes of a submarine. Everything you want to know about Google "doodles" is outlined here and you can view an archive of the images.


  1. I really liked the summer logo when I saw it, and the Les Paul was fun to play around with! :) Thanks for that link to the archive - I didn't know about that! Very cool.

  2. "The 30 Best Pop Culture Google Doodles" on Flavorwire: http://flavorwire.com/210316/the-30-best-pop-culture-google-doodles. Includes the Murakami one.

  3. Cool. :) Check out the one on Google today for Jim Hensen`s 75th Birthday! :D
