Sixteen years ago today, Google was born in a now legendary Palo Alto, CA, garage. In honor of the tech-iversary, we've compiled 30 of our favorite Google doodles.
A way to celebrate the birthdays of pop culture legends and national milestones, the Google Doodle is a nod to the playful side of the company via a day-long redesign of its corporate logo on the site's homepage. The Google Doodle concept started while the search giant was still in its infancy and founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin added a stick figure to the logo as a way of saying they were out of the office attending Burning Man in the Nevada desert. Over 1,000 doodles have appeared on Google homepages in the US and abroad in the years since.
A team of Google designers work on the doodles, but they are open to receiving suggestions and doodles themselves from the public. Click on for some major inspiration!
