In a bid invoke an emotional response, embed themselves into your subconscious and ultimately make their brand stand out from the crowd. Take Google for instance, the plain white background with colorful logo often swapped out for Googles signature Google doodle’s is arguably one of the simplest yet most memorable pages on the web.
