Wow, that's a pretty cool logo.

Wow, but I don' like the fact that it's bordered. I think if they had it fade to #000000 and made the whole page black like they did for the "Lights Out" project a while back, it would look super awesome.

Is this already showing on some homepages or did you just try the image URL?

The picture above is hosted at the chinese domain. The logo is on the site there but not in other countries where it isn't the 31st yet.
(Sorry about the bad explanation, I'm tired :P)

[put at-character here]Philipp's first comment: It was online on google.cn when i posted the link :)

btw: The Doodle is not designed by Dennis Hwang.

"Happy Halloween! Doodle designed by Wes Craven"

I was able to see the logo on google.com, few hours ago, but now it's gone.. :/

Anyhow, cool logo!
I wonder why Dennis didn't make it.. :|

David, I would think it's quite possible Dennis only does a portion of logos these days, and not all of them anymore. Wes Craven on the other hand, he's the director of A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Last House on the Left, Scream, and other horror movies. Not sure if that was supposed to be a joke (where did it say "Doodle designed by Wes Craven"?) or if he had something to do with it :)

> where did it say "Doodle designed by Wes Craven"

It's on the ALT and TITLE text of the logo.
