Notice anything familiar when you made your first trek on over to Google this morning? The Google Doodle celebrating the spring equinox (which is today) was created by none other than Marimekko!
“We are thrilled about this creative collaboration that got started when Google Vice President Marissa Mayer visited our textile printing factory in Helsinki. Marimekko design is all about understanding the beauty of life just as we encounter it every day – celebrating everyday moments and the special characteristics and nuances of the different seasons. Thus, with the First Day of Spring and Fall doodles, we want to inspire people to free their own creativity and have fun with it – every day and each season,” says Mika Ihamuotila, President and CEO of Marimekko.
Based on the work of Marimekko designers like Maija Isola, Kristina Isola, Maija Louekari, Aino-Maija Metsola, Theresa Moorhouse, and Katsuji Wakisaka, I’m sure you’ll find something in the doodle you already love, and maybe something new to cherish. And if you see something that you’ve just need to, want to, got to own – check out AlwaysMod for your Marimekko needs. I’m sure we’ve got what you’re looking for. And if not, just ask!
