Google Doodlers

January 13, 2012

Imagine being a Doodler for Google?!

On January 3rd there was a post written on the American Profile blog by jpoet. Below is the beginning of the post which is about the artists who work at Google creating the doodles. The doodlers “humanize the company’s worldwide search network, used more than 1 billion times daily”. You can read the rest of it by clicking here.

“Growing up in Uniondale, N.Y., Jennifer Hom loved to draw, especially doodles of flowers, unicorns and fairies. Today, the artist still doodles–but for an audience of millions of computer users who visit, the popular Internet search site.

Working at the offices of Google Inc. in Mountain View, Calif. (pop. 74,066), Hom is a member of the creative team that produces amusing, informative and whimsical doodles that decorate Google’s corporate logo on its home page for national holidays and special events–or sometimes just for fun.

“Don’t listen to anyone who says you can’t do anything with art, because it’s not true,” says Hom, 24, who graduated in 2009 from the Rhode Island School of Design.
