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….

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. The event was invented by Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert to celebrate modern industrialism and was hosted at the Crystal Palace, a massive glass exhibition centre designed specifically for the event. As noted on Earth day, Google Doodles are getting a lot more interactive. Today’s has a zoom feature that allows you to magnify portions of the doodle to find some neat little historical details. Can you find all the animations?…

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 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…

Whilst the space race may be over, 50 years ago the race to get a man in space was a hot topic and Russia’s Yuri Gagarin first manned space mission was global front page news. Google honors the achievement with a worldwide Google Doodle April 12….

Everyone loves Sundays, but this Sunday is particularly special as Google is celebrating the 119th anniversary of the first documented ice cream sundae. Surprisingly, the ice cream sundae has a controversial past. It is said to have been invented accidentally. The urban tale goes that in more austere times the clergy deemed the popular dessert, ice cream sodas, to be ‘too frilly’ a food to eat on the Sabbath (naturally a Sunday). So, instead of offering an ice cream soda, ice cream was served with cherries and syrup drizzled on top….

In honor of Harry Houdini’s 137th birthday Google has given the famed illusionist a Google Doodle. The special logo was displayed just hours before Houdini’s last living assistant passed away at the age of 103, the Associated Press reported….

While Google employees have had a hand in the overthrow of the despotic Egyptian government last month, Google chose an interesting Doodle – the birthday of the composer of the National Anthem – as the country holds a referendum this Saturday to determine what issues will be voted on later this year….

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8. This year marks the Day’s 100th anniversary and Google is helping women worldwide organize on bridges this year.
