2018 . Google

We were invited to star on the biggest creative canvas of the last 20 years: Google’s homepage. To celebrate its 20th birthday, Google tasked us with making their special anniversary doodle. We designed, illustrated, and animated 20 original scenes based on 20 original searches for each year—bringing questions and queries from around the world together into a single doodle.

From traditional and 3D animation to stop-motion scenes using clay and papercraft, we threw our entire arsenal of styles at the doodle. The result? A one-in-a-million doodle seen by billions. Feeling Lucky with this one.
