Friday Five is our new addition to The Think Tank blog: every Friday, we select five of the best examples of any given subject across design, architecture, and advertising.
The first edition looks at some of Google’s best Doodles, which have been entertaining users since 1998, celebrating events with light-hearted variations of Google’s logo.
Here’s our Friday Five:
1. ‘Evidence of water found on Mars’
This adorable animation is dedicated to the recent scientific reveal, showcasing a very thirsty Mars.
2. ‘30th Anniversary of PAC-MAN’
Why not play this interactive retro game? ‘Insert a coin’ and chase the ghosts around the Google-inspired maze.
3. ‘Google’s 15th Birthday’
This interactive doodle is fun for everyone: give the piñata a bash and see who can win the most sweets.
4. ‘Total Lunar Eclipse’
Including real footage of the lunar eclipse, this Doodle shows the progress of the eclipse from start to finish.
5. ‘150th Anniversary of the Tube’
Like Google, the Tube has kept many Londoners connected over the years. In this colourful Doodle, each tube line transforms into the Google logo.
This is our top Friday Five – let us know what Google Doodles you would include.
