  1. Dominance: The large Google logo and search box gives it dominance, making it the core (and to most, sole) focus of the home page.
  2. Contrast (and colour): Google’s logo uses bright (mostly primary) colours, and these mixes well, forming a visually pleasing logo. The logo also has sufficient contrast against a white background, making it stand out on the page.
  3. Shape: The search box uses a rectangular shape to delineate the search field, making it very usable.
  4. Negative space: Google’s homepage is predominantly made out of negative space, which makes the search box (the main function of the page) the center of attention. The negative space also works well for the page, as it acts like a blank sheet of paper before users type in their search terms.
  5. Balance: The page is almost vertically symmetrical, resulting in a sense of balance that is very pleasing and calm to look at.
