Royal Wedding Google Doodle is a Stretch

A lot of people found Google’s recent doodle for John James Audubon difficult to read. I personally didn’t have too much trouble with it, but I do look at these things a lot. However, today’s Royal Wedding-themed doodle on is a bit of a stretch.

Are Google’s doodles simply getting harder to read? I can’t think of one in recent memory that was this difficult to find a Google logo in. This is more difficult than a “Magic Eye” (remember those?).

If I squint my eyes, and use my imagination, I can kind of make out the word “Google,” but it’s still a bit off from the actual logo-style (at least from what I can see). Let us know if you disagree.
The first “G” and the “l” are the ones I’m having the most trouble with.

I enjoy a good Google Doodle, and appreciate the creativity that goes into making interesting images that present the classic Google logo, and they’re often done so in a very clever manner. This one, while not necessarily a bad piece of art, is just a little less convincing in its portrayal of the logo itself, if you ask me.

Now, the Earth Day and Pac Man doodles? Top notch.
