Martha Graham was born 117 years ago today and Google called on “motionographer” Ryan Woodward to honor the event with an animated Doodle. I was hoping for a Monty Python theme, but this logo could be a classic….

Google is celebrating characters created by British children’s book author and illustrator Roger Hargreaves, who today would have turned 76. The characters featured in Google’s series of logos all come from two series of books written by Hargreaves — “Mr. Men” and “Little Miss.” In case you missed it, reload Google enough times today and you’ll be treated to a total of 16 different Doodles.

Today Google is honoring the 160th Anniversary of the World’s First Fair. The event took place in Hyde Park in 1851 and was called the Great Exhibition.

Google is celebrating the 226th birthday of John James Audubon, the French-American ornithologist, artist, and naturalist with a special logo. Fitting that Google is honoring Audubon, considering that in his day Audubon had a Google-like mission to paint every bird species in North America (Google’s mission today is, obviously, much larger: to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful)….

Google Doodle logos are popping up in various Google sites around the world. While they are all different, they share a common theme: children….

Google have raised awareness of Earth Day for the last 10 years with a new Doodle. The doodle designs have got more creative and complex with the years and have touched upon different planetary themes and concerns such as solar energy to polar ice caps. This month, known as Earth Month, Google has really put it’s money where it’s mouth is by investing over $300 million dollars in clean-technology and alternative energy schemes. So, at SEW we have been expecting something a little bit special from the eco-conscious company. SEW spotted today’s Earth Day Google Doodle, seven hours earlier and…
