* Make sure your design complements the shape of the letters in the Google logo, but don't let that restrict your creativity.
* Experiment with different media to see which one works best for your design (you can even create your doodle on your PC).
* Don't over-complicate your design – simpler images often have the most impact.
* Remember that your design could end up on the Google homepage, so imagine how it will look on screen.
* Remember to use colour well and think about how it interacts with a white background.
* Avoid commercial or copyrighted images.
* Think outside the box – try to create a doodle that's different from your classmates and hasn't been done before.
* Feel free to use the space behind and in front of the Google letters, but try to maintain your design's overall balance.
* Have fun! "Doodle 4 Google" is all about creativity and enjoying designing fun things.
