“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.” Since we’re about to start the weekend, today’s tip is less about productivity but more just for fun! 🙂

There are Over 2000 doodles!

It all started back in 1988 (the year I was born) when Larry Page and Sergey Brin introduced the first Google Doodle – placing a stick figure drawing behind the 2nd “o” in the word Google, to indicate they’re heading out to the Burning Man Festival.

What first began as a joke very soon turned out to be a huge success, and Google started sharing Doodles more and more regularly on the Google homepage. Since then and up to now Google introduced more than 2000 Doodles (!) – celebrating birthday’s, special events, ‘this day in history’ and more. As the concept evolved, Google also started creating interactive Doodles such as playable games, videos and toys!

 The Archive

Since we’re speaking about Google, it won’t come as a surprise to learn that Google kept every single one of those Doodles in an archive accessible to the public. In the archive you can search for Doodles by year, country, subject or type. So for example, you can search for a Doodle shared in Canada on July 2013, or for Doodles of specific holidays or events. It’s really fun and interesting to see all the creative ways Google transformed they’re logo! Go ahead and take a look for yourself at: google.com/doodles
