Interview with Google Doodle Creator

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

To follow up on an earlier article on Flayrah, the San Francisco Chronicle has an interview with Dennis Hwang, the creator of the cute Google doodles:

During the Olympics, when a speed-skating fox, a bear pushing a curling stone and other cutesy images adorned the "Google" logo on the popular Internet search engine, hundreds of users wrote in to compliment the art department.

That provoked a lot of laughs at Google headquarters, because the "art department" actually is just one guy: Dennis Hwang, a 23-year-old Web programmer who whips up the doodles in his spare time, usually for holidays.
