The Moderating Effect of Brand Commitment on Consumer Response to Logo Shape Redesign

Consumers can have strong reactions to brand logo redesigns. We posit that reaction to change in roundness of logo shape is moderated by consumer brand commitment. Results from two experimental studies indicate that consumers who are strongly committed to a brand have a more negative attitude toward the brand following exposure to the redesigned brand logo. Conversely, consumers less committed to a brand have a more positive attitude toward the brand. Furthermore, logo evaluation provides additional insight into the processes underlying these results.
