Don't care. I keep my clubs covered so they are quiet in the bag and not rattling around when I am walking or on my push cart. I probably couldn't tell you what the emblem looks like.
Marketing strategies sometimes use eyeball candy to attract consumers.

On the sole, I could care less. Not sure I could deal with hitting a club with a brightly colored crown.bright colors,
I think this is more for functionality than aesthetics. For me, I appreciate the weights as much for the ability to add weight to the head easily as for the ability to move weight around.moveable weights,
I think the adjustable adapters for the hosels are along the same line as the adjustable length in the new Ping putters. I'd assume more people use it to dial in to their preferred specs, then rarely if ever move it. I know that's my process. I think it's also beneficial when trying to sell. Instead of being limited to buyers who are looking for the same loft as you're selling, you now have a range of lofts that the club will fit. Throw in lie adjustment and fade/draw bias adjustment and it's just bacon on the eggs (I would say icing on the cake, but that's WAY too much carbs).adjustable hosels, etc,
but as I look through photos of new clubs both drivers and irons I started thinking that most of this stuff you can't see at address...
Why do we care if the sole of the driver is red, yellow, blue or green? Is it made for TV? Is it purely marketing? What about the badging of an iron? You really only see it when the club is on the rack or in the bag so what does it matter what it looks like?
Because it’s on display at a golf store and had look cool and show the tech so people pick it up and try it. It’s also nice pulling off a cover before your shot or looking st your bag and seeing what you like.

in my foursome we care about results. When I jack an 8 iron and from the similar spot they jack the 6i that is all we talk about.
Humans care about looks, its just the way it is. Be it a house, a car, a girlfriend, a meal, or a forged iron...people want something that stimulates them or fills them with satisfaction.

At the end of the day, its all marketing. Thats why I refuse to buy any of the big name brand clubs. I'll keep my Pinemeadows, Wilsons and Top-Flites and let someone else pay for the marketing and the multi-million dollar endorsement deals.

My last comment goes for food, too. The only reason I'm eating it is nourishment. I don't care what it looks like on the plate.
