Q: How do you personally interpret the Clarice Lispector quote you designed?
A: Such a simple sentence, however so powerful: for me it means the power of self-overcoming and a woman’s reflection on what she really is versus what society says she should be. Let each woman choose her own version of “I”.
Based in the United States, American illustrator Melissa Crowton created the multilingual opening and closing images in today’s Doodle.

Q: How do you personally interpret the NL Beno Zephine quote you designed?
