There are few things I look forward to in tech more than Google’s Doodles. They have paid tribute to figures, historical periods, and the best of innovation. They are always creative, thought-provoking, and educational. Simply put, the folks at Google always swing for the fences.
Their new doodle doesn’t disappoint. It celebrates the work of Art Clokey, the godfather of claymation. I remember his work as a kid. He was a trailblazer in his field, so it seems fitting that he would be recognized in this way.
See more of his work here, in the Washington Post.
The folks at Google have taken their artistry to new heights with their new doodle. Colorful, striking and detailed, the 17 illustrations took 250 hours to complete. They will run through December 25th. It is clear that Bing, which has a new picture on its front page every day, has forced Google to step its game up – incorporating historic and special occasions with its logo. And over the last year in particular, Google has done this quite effectively.
