Here is how Google Doodle came into being
Google doodle came into being in 1998 after the founders Larry and Sergey drew a figure behind the second ‘o’ of Google as a message to show that they had left office and were at the Burning Man festival. The company then decided to be more creative with it and decided to decorate logo to mark cultural events and soon users like the new change.
Google’s story begins in 1997 in Standford University where Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin were pursuing Ph.D. in computer science. Brin was assigned to show Page around and ‘the chance encounter was the happy surprise that started it all’. The two then had a common goal which was to come up with a system to organise the world’s information. Google was thus born and now has 4.5 billion users in 160 countries speaking 124 languages.
