Just about anybody who owns a computer and  regularly surfs the internet  is familiar with Google's logo. This logo is a perfect example of astute marketing strategies crafted by corporations so to help customers identify a business. Google's current logo introduced in May of 2010, was designed by Ruth Kedar, however, every once in a while, users may notice modifications in honor of special events, holidays, or  to mark the birthdays of famous people across the glob. Such modifications are affectionately called ''Goggle Doodles''.

One of the most popular and enjoyed logos was the one created for the 30th anniversary of the Pac-Man. This was an interactive logo that actually allowed you to play the video game by clicking on the ''insert coin'' button. If this was clicked once again it also allowed two players to play at once. Those nostalgic of this favorite logo can simply see it again by visiting this ''link''.
