We're all familiar with the Animated Google Doodles that take over the search engine's homepage on special days. It's easy to forget that these fun small animations get billions (yes, BILLIONS!) of eyeballs everyday, so we got curious and wanted to get the DL on where they come from and who they come from.
Turns out, the Google Doodle actually originated as an Out of Office message from Google Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin! In 1998 the Google Founders were planning on being out of office for a week to attend the Burning Man festival. They played around with the Google Logo and added a simple stick figure to indicate that they'd be MIA.
Since then the Internet giant has assembled a team of illustrators, ahem, Doodlers, that is constantly creating and brainstorming new animated and interactive Doodles! We wanted to share with you what we thought were some of their more creative animations.
