Google Doodle South Africa Winner!
Google South Africa ran, a few months ago, a competition to celebrate 20 years of freedom. After receiving entries from all over the country, Katya’s design was chosen to appear on Google on 3 December 2014.
Katya said “The reflection symbolises 20 years of freedom. In my South African dream, there is no more poaching. We must fight for those that can’t speak,”
As graphic designers we love the fact that this highlights how design and visual representation can share a message, extending past language and cultural restrictions.
Well done to the winners, now we need to make sure that the next winners represent our home town of Durban! (maybe we should get our studio to enter, do they have a 25+category?!)
Google Doodle Facts:
- The Google Doodle is an artistic version of the Google logo. Google Doodles represent events like holidays, anniversaries, or current events. Some of the doodles were limited to Google’s country specific home pages while others appeared globally.
They started in 1998 when Larry & Sergey (founders of Google) placed a stick figure behind the second “o” of the word Google. This was so well received so they started doing it more!
- A full team of illustrators, designers, animators and developers design the doodles.
- Since 1998 there have been over 2,000 doodles designed
