The graphic designers at Google have made a name for themselves over the past few years by designing memorable home page doodles, typically coordinating with historical events. This Valentine's Day, they added another creative twist to the search engine home page with a design commemorating artist Robert Indiana.

Google's rendition of Indiana's "Love" piece appeared on the site in honor of Valentine's Day, according to PC Magazine. The letters in Google were spelled out in a similar manner to the original work, which has a tilted "O" on a stack of letters. Indiana's pop art piece has also been featured on a U.S. postage stamp and in sculpture form at the Museum of Modern Art.

Indiana, who was born in 1928, has created a number of different renditions of "Love" to accommodate languages around the world. During the 2008 election, he developed a "Hope" version of the piece to support Barack Obama, who was then running for president of the U.S.

Graphic designers create visual solutions to communication problems, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the case of Google doodlers, images are developed to promote the different agendas and interests of the search engine company.
