A Google Doodle is a temporary alteration of the logo on the homepage of Google. It focuses on celebrating events, holidays, people, and achievements. The first used Google Doodle was a Burning Man stick figure which was released on August 30, 1998. It indicates the Burning Man festival in the Nevada Desert. It was designed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin when they attended the festival. They placed the stick figure behind the 2nd “o” in the word “Google” to reveal a comical message that the founders were “out of office”.
