In the 1960s Moog crafted and invented the electronic analog Moog Synthesizer, bringing an entirely new genre of music and sound to the world. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="367" title="Design, moog, google" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/05/24/moog_keyboard_02.jpg?1337878616" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="355" title="Design, moog, google" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/05/24/moog_keyboard_01.jpg?1337878624" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/mood-synthesizer-interactive-instrument-google-doodle" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/mood-synthesizer-interactive-instrument-google-doodle#comments design google history illustration music series Thu, 24 May 2012 16:55:23 +0000 jessicapatterson 4240 at http://design.org Tradition Meets Tech: A St. Patrick's Day Google Doodle Story http://design.org/blog/tradition-meets-tech-st-patricks-day-google-doodle-story <p>Over the years, Google has stepped up their game in the Google Doodles department. Originally a festive—if not slightly gimmicky logo replacement, the Doodles were just that—doodles. Some of the earliest examples seemed to fall victim to clip art and paint edits, but that's all in the past. Now we look forward to seeing what artistic creation Google will dream up next for their much-less-literal logo hybrids. Sometimes we're surprised by animation, other times it's a cheerful or artistic change that brings novelty or joy to a predictable experience. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="341" title="Design, google, stpatricks" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/18/stpatricksday_google_04.jpg?1332058046" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="606" height="235" title="Design, google, stpatricks" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/18/stpatricksday-1_0.gif?1332058264" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="683" title="Design, google, stpatricks" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/18/stpatricksday_google_02.jpg?1332057631" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/tradition-meets-tech-st-patricks-day-google-doodle-story" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/tradition-meets-tech-st-patricks-day-google-doodle-story#comments design google holiday illustration web Sun, 18 Mar 2012 08:05:43 +0000 jessicapatterson 4162 at http://design.org
