The Influence of Design Symmetry and Complexity on Product Preference
The influence of the visual design principles complexity and symmetry on consumer product preference was investigated. Existing literature mostly focuses on aesthetic value. However, as the design of a product also influences the perception of functionalities, quality, and ease of use, these product aspects were also taken into account. Indeed, the preference for complexity and symmetry in a design depends on the product aspect that is most important to the target group of consumers. Differences in aspect importance between age, gender and educational groups are identified.
