It’s one online art disaster after another for Google. Throughout the year—during special holidays, birthdays, and other strange occurrences—the world dominating search engine changes its homepage logo. But where do they get the inspiration for so many alterations? Maybe it’s for free, by holding a ‘Doodle 4 Google’ contest and asking kids from kindergarten to high school to submit a logo based on the theme of “What if…?” The young scribblers submitted concepts ranging from racial harmony to the environment and Gothic architecture. Go ahead and vote on the 40 finalists and notice how the grades 4-6 submissions are not only more cerebral than the high school kids, but in the case of this helping hands motif, drawn better too.
