2003년 2월에 구글에 인수된 블로거닷컴을, 이제는 익숙한 라운드가 있는 오렌지 색 블로거닷컴 로고, NavBar, 각 페이지의 외형과 프로세스를 단순화하여 새롭게 디자인StopDesignDouglas Bowman이 2009년 3월 20일에 구글을 그만 두었다.
2004년 블로거닷컴을 새롭게 디자인 했을 때 그는,
The new Blogger | stopdesign: "Overall, what a great project. Despite the frustration with browser rendering consistency that plagued us on the tail end of this project, it was still fun. Good client, good team, good product. What more could you ask for?"
라고 말했지만, 구글을 떠나면서
Goodbye Google | stopdesign: "Yes, it’s true that a team at Google couldn’t decide between two blues, so they’re testing 41 shades between each blue to see which one performs better. I had a recent debate over whether a border should be 3, 4 or 5 pixels wide, and was asked to prove my case. I can’t operate in an environment like that. I’ve grown tired of debating such minuscule design decisions. There are more exciting design problems in this world to tackle."
라고 말을 남겼다. 큰 행운과 무료 급식과 많은 경험을 준 구글에게 감사하는 말도.
