Google puts a lot of work into the ever-changing logos it puts on its homepages around the world to commemorate historical events, holidays and the birthdays of people like Jim Henson, Cezanne or Thomas Edison. Indeed, there is a whole team at Google that focuses on nothing else but creating these so-called doodles and – at an increasing rate – interactive experiences for the Google homepage as well. For a while now, Google has offered a gallery of these logos, but today, the company is launching a revamped version of its Doodle site that makes searching for a specific logo significantly easier. The site features a total of over 1,000 static and animated doodles.
In addition – and just in time before the holidays – Google is also launching a doodle store on Zazzle, where you can get shirts, cards, posters, bumper stickers, mugs, stamps and other swag with your favorite doodles going back all the way to the year 2000. Until now, the only place to get doodle-themed swag was Google's employee store, which sadly isn't open to the public (though Google's employees are allowed to bring in a guest or two).
