Tej Kohli Talks About Google's Holiday Doodle

Thursday morning, Google released their holiday greeting doodle which consists of 17 individual interactive images replacing the letters of original Google logo. Tej Kohli gives a detailed overview of this new doodle and its significance.

On opening the Google's homepage today, you will see portraits of scenes around the world. If you click on the first image you are taken to a Google search on St. Basil's Cathedral in Russia and as you saunter through the digital photos, you will be taken on delightful journey to the Great Wall of China, the Sahara Desert, Venice Gondolas ending with “up on the housetop”, a secular Santa Song written by Benjamin Hanby in 1864. Tej Kohli found this doodle concept amazingly attractive and interesting.

Just like the Google September bouncing ball logo, Tej Kohli is speculating a secret hidden message in this logo as well. If you look at the logo carefully, you may notice the blocks roughly arranged to from the word Google. You may also notice that the order of portraits' colors are also in sync with the colors of letters in the original logo i.e. blue, red, yellow, blue green and red.

The logo has been designed by Michael Lopez who has been working on this year's holiday doodle since July, with other four artists who collectively took 250 hours to complete this logo.

In a statement to the Wall Street Journal he said, "We want to end the year with a bang." and Tej Kohli thinks they have indeed done it.

The initial idea was to display the doodle in installments but then they decided that it would be best to out them all together. The logo will be on display till the Christmas.

Looking back at all the doodle's Google has released this year, it wouldn't be wrong to say that this indeed has has been a creative year. From birthdays, holidays and interactive video games, Google has left no stone unturned to reflect its creative streak. Let's see now what they have for the users in the year ahead.

Tej Kohli's this year favorite doodle was the Pacman game, what was yours?
