Can You Easily Guess the Brand?

Preorder Tatoo book by Scene360

I read a study some time ago that stated if the first letter and last letter of the same word are present, you can still read it in full. That is the case with many typos, they’re still readable. Another example of this can be seen in TVN Channel’s print ad campaign, which three famous brandnames (Heineken, Coca-cola, and Ikea) are shortened to first and last letters, yet still easily identified. Of course, color, typeface, symbols and composition play a big role in our familiarity with brands.
