So I’ve officially been given free reign: my bi-weekly blog is clear of all topical restraints. Have I seen any good movies lately? Read any interesting books? Discovered the perfect root beer? Settled the Fante/Bukowski debate once and for all? You, dear readers, will be the first to know!

But all this freedom has come as a shock to my Wpromote-conditioned mind. When given the choice to write about anything, I still decided to write about Google! The halloween spirit has captured my attention this week… I’m haunted by the Google homepage!

I don’t remember the first time I encountered one of Google’s festive holiday logos, but I know that every one has brought a smile to my face. Today, I decided to delve a little deeper and see what i could find out about those delightfully different designs. A speedy Google search offered a wealth of information (as per usual). Reading about Dennis Hwang was a highlight; he’s the designer behind Google’s festive logos since July 2000, and current head webmaster. I was also guided (Googled?) back to the fantastic database of all past holiday logos!

In celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, here are 9 years of Google Halloween logos in all there glory! You can trace their rise through these illustrations, and I heard they’ve hidden the secrets to their success within them…

    I like the 2008 one. Dark. Parents, don’t let the kids use Google today.
