5 Google Doodles We Still Remember

Since the very first Doodle in 1998, there have been over 2000 Google Doodles and counting. From artists to astronauts, Google have been celebrating birthdays, holiday and all manner of special occasions from all over the world; with their dedicated team of Doodlers coming up with ideas all the time.

As Digital Marketers, the internet features pretty highly in our day-to-day lives so we’ve seen more than our fair share of Doodles over the years. So got thinking, which are our favourite Doodles of all time?
