Now here's an article that should get your creative juices flowing! Got an image for your company that you can alter to link to world events or commemorative days?

 

That is what Oreo has done for its cookie. The photo here commemorates the Mars Rover landing (the red planet). Ingenious! This article by Michael Sebastian explains how Oreo keeps playing with its cookie to make it  immediately relevant. It's fun. It's play. The photos go viral.
