Google dedicates doodle to the Olympics

Whether it’s the Sesame Street’s anniversary or John Lennon’s birthday, Google creates variations of its logo on special occassions. The latest creation was dedicated to the Olympic Games in London which started on Friday.

Since 1998, Google has been entertaining Internet users by creating variations of their logo. Instead of the traditional lettering, they present what they call “doodles” for special occasions, which may be birthdays of famous artists, special events or holidays. The doodles often link to websites related to the occasion.

On Friday, the Google website featured an athletic theme to honor the Olympic Games in London. The icon links to the search term “London 2012 Opening Ceremony.” There are no special features, but it is well-designed, as always.
