When Prominent Logos Make You Feel Competent

We show that when a product is associated with an activity that has a performance-related component, consumers have a stronger preference for products with prominent brand logos over subtle brand logos. This effect occurs because prominent (vs. subtle) brand logos provide consumers with a more efficacious self-view in performance-related activities.
