Google Doodler, Katy Wu, helped design and come up with the concept behind this Doodle. She told her story about the Doodle explaining:
Something that stood out to me about Nelson Mandela was his eloquent way with words. I thought his words gave a great insight into the kind of man he was, so I wanted to focus the creative direction of the doodle on his quotes against a backdrop of the history of South Africa.
