Effects of Design Symmetry on Perceptions of Brand Personality

Grounding our approach in aesthetics and visual perception, we argue that symmetry and asymmetry, respectively, enhance perceptions of brand sophistication or excitement, and we trace this to the aesthetic interpretation of symmetric imagery.
