Google Teams Up with Leading Artists to Create New Themes for iGoogle

April 30, 2008

Today, we launched a collection of new themes created by leading artists for iGoogle, Google’s personalized homepage. With iGoogle, users can access and arrange the content they want on their homepage to personalize their web experience.

We’ve collaborated with almost 70 artists from around the world, inviting them to use iGoogle as their canvas by creating unique, dynamic themes for our users to personalize their pages. In honor of this, celebrated pop artist Jeff Koons created a special Google doodle, which appears on Google’s homepage today.

Participating artists in this collection include:

  • Yann Arthus-Bertrand
  • Tory Burch
  • Dale Chihuly
  • Coldplay
  • Oscar de la Renta
  • Dolce & Gabbana
  • Mark Ecko
  • Anne Geddes
  • Michael Graves
  • Rolf Harris
  • Akira Isogawa
  • Kwon Ki-Soo
  • Jeff Koons
  • Robert Mankoff
  • Mark Morris
  • Nigo ®
  • Philippe Starck
  • Diane von Furstenberg

To see the entire list of participating artists and their themes, please see: For those who can’t stand to pick just one theme for their page, we’ve created a sampler theme that rotates through all our participating artists’ themes.

All themes are dynamic, changing throughout the day, and are as diverse as the personalities who created them. This new collection provides users with a diverse selection of themes to reflect their personal style on their homepage.
