Google celebrates its 25th Anniversary with a creative doodle
Marking its 25th anniversary in 2023, Google has put up a creative doodle on the homepage for itself today. The GIF displays all of Google’s old logos, ending with the current one in which the two ‘o’s are replaced with the number ‘25’.
Officially introduced on September 27, 1998, Google Inc. delineated in a blog that its journey began when doctoral students Sergert Brin and Larry Page met at Stanford University’s computer science program in the late 1990s. Having same focus towards making the World Wide Web more accessible to people, the duo first started developing a prototype for a better search engine, right from their dorm rooms, and later shifted their operations to a rented garage, which became Google’s first office.
“Much has changed since 1998 — including our logo as seen in today’s Doodle — but the mission has remained the same: to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Billions of people from all over the globe use Google to search, connect, work, play, and so much more! Thank you for evolving with us over the past 25 years. We can’t wait to see where the future takes us, together”, reads the blog post.
Well, the concept of doodle surfaced when the founders strived to show their attendance at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert before the company’s establishment. The first doodle was a stick figure drawing behind the 2nd ‘o’ in the word. Google and the logo comically showed that the founders were ‘out of office’. Later, Dennis Hwang, who was then an intern at the company went on to become Google’s doodler, when asked to produce a doodle for Bastille Day in 2000. It was very well received by the users then. Since then, Google consistently carried forward this trend of coming up with innovative doodles. So far Google’s team of illustrators and engineers have created over 5,000 doodles.
