I’m not sure if everyone noticed but on some ‘special’ days, Google change their logo. Its called Google doodle and sometimes its interactive. Today, I was just randomly using Google and I noticed that the logo is different again. Then I found out that its International Women’s Day today!
Isn’t it cute? Lol. As I didn’t know much about this day, I read on Wikipedia that its a day to celebrate the achievements women achieved. I guess its somewhat similar to Mother’s day except this is more general to all women. International Women’s Day is not a big holiday in most places but some countries still follow the tradition where guys give small gifts to women in their life.
Google celebrated today by doing a simple and nice logo but sometimes on bigger occasions, Google have interactive ones. One of my favorite interactive one was the Christmas 2011 edition.
Another one that I love a lot is from Valentine’s this year. Its shows a story of a boy trying his best to find a perfect Valentine’s day gift for a girl he like. He tries his hardest bringing her different gifts everytime but still the girl ignores him everytime. In the end, he just gave up and started jumping rope beside her. That’s when the girl realize that he is spending time with her and gives him a hug. The best gifts are gifts you can’t buy with money!
Another famous one is when Google joined in on the The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). They kept it simple by just blacking out their logo.
Because of the popularity of all the Google Doodles and people wanting to see the past doodles, Google now have a special page for its doodles collection and they also have a contest for creating doodles. Its called Doodle for Google 2012. If you are creative and artistic, why not take a look! Contest ends March 23rd.
Can’t wait to see what they have in store for the next few months and the outcome from this competition.
