Creating Google Doodles
The Google Doodle began soon after the company was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin; they were heading to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada and wanted to acknowledge that they would be out of the office. So they placed a Burning Man stick figure inside the second "O" of the logo. Now the Doodles are created by a team of 13, headed by Ryan Germick.
