Google’s Valentine’s Day Logo By Robert Indiana

Google is featuring their Valentine’s Day logo, designed by Robert Indiana. Robert Indiana designed the 8 cent love stamp back in 1973. Google decided to use that design towards the 2011 version of their Google Doodle for Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine's Day from Google & Robert Indiana

The logo is not a typical standard “doodle”-like version of their logo. Typically, the letters of Google are done across one line. Here, being that the love stamp was two lines, LO-VE, Google designed to make their logo two lines, GOO-GLE. Here is a picture of the famous U.S. post office love stamp:


Google’s Marissa Mayer tweeted about the logo this morning saying, “Robert Indiana for our Valentine’s Day doodle!”.

Google isn’t the only one with special Valentine’s Day logos. As I noted on the Search Engine Roundtable, search engines like Bing, Yahoo, and others have special logos today as well.

So do you like Google’s Valentine’s Day logo?

    Man that logo gives me a headache. Plus it’s about as creative as a box of chocolates on Valentine’s day.
