Google’s new Doodle now available in Europe, might also join the U.S. Google site later.
After the very cute “biggest snowflake observed Google Doodle” last month, Google’s new patented Doodle re-appears to celebrate the 80th birthday of French influential film critic and filmmaker François Truffaut. The new Doodle is now available in Europe, including Google France of course, and it might also arrive in Google’s United States website on Monday (because of time zones).
According to a Wikipedia entry, Francois Truffaut, aside from being a successful filmmaker and an influential critic of films, he is also one of the founders of the French new wave, the name given by critics for the filmmakers during the 1950s and 1960s France. Interestingly, the French New Wave products were influenced by classical Hollywood cinema and Italian Neorealism and it touched the social and political topics of the generation.
François Truffaut flaunts three colors only, black, white and dark yellow (if I’m not mistaken), and it features a man replacing the second letter G in the Google logo — a very artistic logo in my opinion.
Last month, Google celebrated the big snowflake recorded by Guinness World Records that measured 15 inches in United States of America. Slightly similar to today’s Google Doodle, the Snowflake Google Doodle was not applied in the international Google.com version (available in other countries) except for United States-based users, and Google UK and Ireland.
Update: The new doodle includes the “sliding” effect, and by clicking right arrow, users will discover two hidden Google Doodles.
