Yes, I like that a lot. I saw one of Mondrian's pieces just yesterday. Now that the Millennium bridge is open, I'm only 5 minutes away from the Tate Modern.

the ultimate googlewhack: search for google on google and have this thread be the number 1 result.

Wouldn't that be Google bombing, not Google whacking?

I actually think Google is overdoing it with the "special" logos these days.

I prefer the Monet logo.

i like the Monet one too

What's up with the 'TM' of Google juxtaposed with the Monet's signature?

I'll take the Mondrian over the Monet.

Almost all of the "cute" logo illustrations have been done by one of Google's programmers.

Any company that celebrates Piet Mondrian's Birthday is OK in my book.

Apologies for the aside, but I've noticed for the past few days that when I'm coming from a .ca IP, "google.com" automatically redirects me to "google.ca". Has this always happened? Does it happen for other countries? Just curious.

Oh, and I vote for the Mondrian over the Monet.

There should be a restraining order on any programmer that gets within fifty yards of Photoshop.

transient - they just started doing this recently. I'm not exactly sure why, as it seems to be identical to the .com version.

I thought both the Monet and Mondrian logos were good.

panopticon The Oolong logo is great!

It's nice that they include international holidays, not just US ones. The Nobel Prize looks like a gold dime. They got Mom the same logo in 2000 and 2001. I think she's going to notice. And I vote for the Monet.

I'm partial to the Monet myself.

The googly eyes over in Fan Art Hell were actually kinda clever while still sticking to the whole simplicity thing.

I like the variation of google logos though I think they are getting less interesting as they appear more often. That's less interesting from a rarity point of view though as I think the occassions they are celebrating are getting more interesting.

I'm in the UK and on my home dial up connection I get directed to google.nl by default. I presume my IP must be in a block registered to a dutch company, or something similar, but my ISP appear to be an italian company. Who knows. I'd rather get .com by default and a simple hint that I could get a country/language specific version if I wanted rather than the auto redirect job.

I liked the Olympic styled logos - especially the hockey one.

The Mondrian logo is great, but I instantly thought:

"Partridge Family bus."

That could indicate something, I'm not sure what.

Uh...yeah Karl. Normally I would agree. But since your comment has absolutely nothing to do with this topic I don't quite get it. This guy's an actual artist who MAJORED in art at Stanford so what's your complaint?

a little off topic, here's a cool tip from Screen Savers to make google your default search engine.

The monet ....anyday.

ebarker: it indicates you're a person of Sound Judgment and Admirable Musical Taste. I noticed the Google logo today immediately, and I clicked through. Never heard of the artist being celebrated, but whadareyagonnado?

panopticon: that is the *cutest* thing I've seen since...well, the original pancake-bunny. Thanks!

Just don't tell Dave Winer about it.. he's already been whining about how Google shouldn't use different logos.
