At this very moment, there are loads of doodles on my notepad, pin board, even on my hand (goes to show my unique organisation techniques). What can I say, I love to doodle. But nobody is a better doodler than Google. We put together our favourite Google doodles and made one of our own.
The Hungry Doodle
We know Google isn’t in the food business, but we secretly wish there were more food Google doodles. We got creative and made our own. What do you think?
The Sound Doodle
To celebrate Robert Moog’s 78th birthday on 23rd May 2012, Google made the ultra interactive Moog synthesizer doodle. This doodle was no easy task and it was done in the 20% “free time” that every Google staff member is allowed. Some employees sleep, some play pool, some write code, and others doodle. To get the full feel of the awesomness of this Google, record your own song and annoy the person next to you.
The Silent Doodle
Charlie Chaplin is the master of silent films and a big inspiration for everyone at hungryhouse. We like to order food online because that means we don’t have to pick up the phone and talk! hhhmmm … maybe we need to make a Chaplin inspired movie about online takeaway.
The Royal Doodle
We’ve seen a lot of Google doodles that are a bit of a stretch, meaning, we have no idea where “Google” is actually written. But hey, it’s the royal wedding and anything goes. We think Westminster Abbey is the “G” and the bridge is the “L”. Any thoughts on the “E”?
The Pea Doodle
Gregor Mendel is the father of genetics, but we weren’t thinking about genetics when we came across this Google doodle that celebrates his 189th birthday. Naturally, we were thinking of mushy peas and how happy we would be if a massive heap of fish and chips or edamame was in front of us.
The Amazing Robot Doodle
This is hands down the best Google doodle we’ve seen. Anything that is interactive and can take our minds off the perpetually grey sky outside makes us happy. Even though 2 +2 is easy maths, this little robot will keep you entertained for hours!
The “I Promise to Change” Doodle
It happens every year. We create impossible resolutions that we rarely follow. From exercise more to learn how to play an instrument, Google has covered the most popular new years resolutions. But, can anyone tell us what the “G” and second “O” are doing?
The Ginger Doodle
This doodle isn’t meant to celebrate gingerbread men, but come on, we’re hungryhouse and we like to celebrate food. 15th March is Hungarian National Day and gingerbread is a traditional food. That’s enough reason for us to eat gingerbread!
The Playful Doodle
Havoc in Heaven is a Chinese animation film that inspired this Google doodle. Who doesn’t love a good animated movie? No, you don’t? Watch a few episodes of The Simpsons and get back to us.
The Cheesy Doodle
No, it’s not cheese. But it looks like cheese and it makes us hungry. This doodle celebrates Jan Kaplicky, the Czech architect who designed many amazing buildings across the UK.
