Google Keeps it Fresh

As a search engine, nothing beats Google. And for something we use so often, it’s a wonder we still haven’t mentally stopped looking at their logo as we search for something else.

It’s part of what keeps us coming back: wondering whether a new design commemorating a holiday, event, or person has been released.

They rarely disappoint; some even verge on brilliance. These are our favorites.

Absolutely stunning. Not only in terms of animation but in capturing her some 7 decades of modern dance history in 15 seconds.

Ancient history, exotic antiquities, the sense of adventure. You can’t help but search the image for other hidden gems.

Unique in it’s direct message; powerful in it’s simplicity; when Google joined the anti-SOPA protest it rallied more than a few to the cause.

Alisha is no stranger to Mr. Van Der Rohe’s work; his contributions as one of the pioneers of modern architecture is as much an inspiration as his ideal that “Less is More.”

Not surprisingly, Nathanael spent quite a bit longer experimenting with the clickable synthesizer than any of us did. It is fun, though.
The Horse in Motion is a composition immediately recognized by all who have ever studied photography & film. Google’s adaptation of it is an incredible tributary piece of interactive art.
