Internet Marketing News: Google Goes Synth!
How do you keep internet marketing experts amused? With a Google synth of course!
It's a job that many of us would love to do - designing the image for the Google home page, but who are they people behind the designs that keep us amused when we log on to our computers each morning? With today's offering, a working synthesizer that had the office playing tunes in unison (one of our favourites ever) we take a look at the inspiration behind the internet marketing experts favourite tool! Chief Doodler, Ryan Germick and Google Engineer, Joey Hurst are the clever duo behind today's creation, their reason being they wanted to "pay tribute to someone who was like a patron saint of the nerdy acts" and we can't thank them enough! Inspired by Robert Moog, developer of the worlds first commercial synthesizer, the Google synth was designed to commemorate what would have been his 78th birthday. The synthesizer, based on the original Moog was certainly a challenge that took Germick and Hurst 4 months to roll out after the initial concept was created. An engineering feat, the Google Doodle requires thousands of lines of code to work - it makes our minds boggle just thinking about it! When presenting the first prototype to Germick, Hurst said "It looked terrible", but producing audio, it was the first step towards the fully functional version on our Google pages today. With so much work having gone into the design, we're sure it'll go down as one of the best Google Doodles ever! With the ability to record, playback, link and Google+ your tunes, it's a good job we're a busy internet marketing agency or we'd be spending all day creating original pieces!
