When Logos Rise and Fall: Exploring the Metaphorical Meaning of Upward and Downward Diagonal Imagery
Using a multimethod approach, we explore consumers’ capacity to extract metaphorical meaning from stylistic properties of logos at an automatic (vs. deliberate) level. Specifically, we investigate the differential semantic concepts communicated by diagonal direction (upward or downward) used in logos, and find that diagonal direction can spontaneously communicate different meanings.
