Dennis Hwang may be the most famous unknown artist in the world — his work doesn’t hang in galleries or museums, but it’s been viewed hundreds of millions of times.
The 28-year-old webmaster designs the whimsical logos that decorate Google.com’s otherwise Spartan Web site on special occasions.
“It’s always a fun kind of challenge to incorporate the logo into the design. Over the years, just because I kind of push myself to use different types of design if I can,” Hwang said.
He has been manipulating the six letters in the Google name into shamrocks, fireworks, hearts and goblins since shortly after he got an internship there in 2000.
