“Google doodles”

8 May

“Google has put up at least 16 different doodles on its home page to celebrate the 76th birth anniversary of English author and illustrator Charles Roger Hargreaves. Hargreaves is best known for his series of Mr Men and Little Miss books for children.”

(Full article and doodles after the jump.)

Roger Hargreaves

Can I just say I love when Google does this? (My favorite homepage being from Michael Jackson’s birthday a few months after his death.)

Although Google is headquartered in California, their homepage must be set to change on east coast time since I’ve seen two different themes today. For Mother’s Day the homepage simply read “Google,” but the “l” was a long-stemmed daisy. Now, it depicts a different Hargreaves image with each refresh.

I understand having a themed logo for a national holiday, but for an artist’s 76th birthday? So my question is:

Who decides which days deserve a special Google doodle?

I want that job!
