File this under, Google just gets it. If you haven't noticed already today, Google has done a massive collaboration with over 70 artists—Dolce & Gabbana and DVF (shown above), to Nigo of BAPE and the Beastie Boys, to Philippe Starck and Jeff Koons—for iGoogle. From DWR's Design Notes, "The internet powerhouse has gotten search page makeovers from designers/artists as diverse as Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Graves and Dale Chihuly. Not only can users choose news, email and games for a personalized Google homepage, but now they can play an active role in its actual design. Pretty cool."
