Google doodles again.
This time the Google engages a conversation to celebrate the 25 years since the discovery of the spherical compound Buckminsterfullerene, also known as a buckyball.
The eponymous brand logo features an 3D interactive buckyball in place of the second yellow “o” in Google’s logo. The buckyball spins to life from a blank white field and can be interacted with when touched with your mouse.

Google remains a leader in marketing innovation. The search engine and technology giant is continues to alter its only brand– the Google® trademark logo– to draw attention to, recognize, and celebrate other’s achievements and historic milestones. Other companies consider this a risk, or even fatal marketing or business step. However, I believe that Google realizes the power its brand has and shares that power to recognize others. The hallmark of a leader at the vanguard of social web movement.
Love when Google remixes its brand.
