Doodle 4 Google is a contest where Google invites students in Japan to use their artistic talents to think big and to redesign Google’s homepage logo for millions to see. We created the full experience for Google’s Doodle 4 Google event in Tokyo in 2012. The project included set design, stage design, animations, lighting design, print design and sound design.
We also designed the after-party, which included activities such as a suite of computers running Google Jam attached to tactile interfaces. We used the Makey Makey system to turn pieces of Play-Doh into a guitar, the floor into a piano and pencil drawings into a drum kit. Less high-tech activities, such as doodling on the windows to build “the Tokyo of the future”, cookie decorating and playing with multiple Google-themed yoga balls rounded out the event.
