Google Doodles Localized – Summer 2010


A doodle is a type of a sketch, an unfocused drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. We are sure that you’ve got used to opening your browser and checking out the new doodle form Google. These simple yet catchy drawings are always very informative and really creative. Here is a piece of history for you: the first Google Doodle was launched to honor of the Burning Man Festival and it was published on August 30th, 1998. The doodle was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed. After that Google took 14 months break and they started delivering unique Doodles starting October 31, 1999 – honoring Halloween.

 

Nowadays almost the whole world knows what Google doodle is and there is a practice to put unique doodle on each respective local version of Google homepage. We’ve decided to put together the most remarkable local Google doodles of this summer and we sincerely hope that you’ll find these really inspirational just like we did. Cheers!
