Today – 27th September 2005 – is Google’s 7th Birthday. To celebrate this 7th year, they have updated their homepage logo in typical Google style, to mark the occasion.
I for one, am wishing this multi-billion dollar 7 year old a “Happy Birthday“.
It seems not that long ago that Google first entered the world of search. But as they say, time flies when you’re having fun – and well fun is one way to describe the impact it has had on search as we know it.
This momentous birthday also got me thinking about how Google has had some fun with all of it’s logos over the past 7 years. Whenever Google does update their logo, there is a buzz around our office as colleagues stop by the Google home page to check it’s latest logo reincarnation out. There is almost a competition to see who spots the themed Google logo first.
Well over the last 7 years, there has been a multitude of creative versions of the logo in honour all sorts of events and occasions. If you are interested in seeing all of the logos, then there is an archive of them available at http://www.google.com/holidaylogos.html
Unfortunately I can’t post a copy of the birthday logo or any of the holiday logos as it would be against copyright. So you are just going to have to go view them yourself.
