Google Beethoven Logo

Today on Google's home page you will see a special, time wasting, but incredibly educational and fun Google logo, aka Doodle for the birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven. Well, technically, he was baptized today 245 years ago on December 17, 1770.

The logo is interactive, asking you to piece together the music sheets from some of his most popular compositions. Google said they constructed "a game in step with beautiful music, whose evocative moods, drama, lightness, and depth made conjuring visuals to match it rollickingly fun."

Here is who made this Doodle:

  • Engineers: Jordan Thompson, Jonathan Shneier, Kris Hom, Charlie Gordon
  • Design Lead: Leon Hong
  • Animatics/Additional Art: Nate Swinehart
  • Piano Recordings: Tim Shneier
  • Production: Gregory Capuano

In fact, Jonathan Shneier posted about it on Google+ saying he is proud and honored to have worked on it. Also, his brother Tim Shneier played the piano that you hear in the Doodle - how cool!

Here is a video of the first part of the Doodle:
