A few weeks back, news of a study that compared people’s reactions when they saw different brands was released.  According to the study, people who saw the Apple brand – even for a subliminal amount of time – scored 20-30% better on creative tests – well outside of a possible placebo effect.  NPR interviews Duke University professor, Gavin Fitzsimmons – who ran the study- on why this might be the case.  Very interesting!

BTW, We think the NPR Logo also might have a similar effect…Meanwhile 9to5Mac makes us drool…
