Dynamic Imagery

Brian’s substantive research interest lies in the areas of advertising, digital marketing, retailing and consumer behavior. One stream of his research investigates dynamic imagery, or the perception of movement in still pictures.  Brian has discovered that brand-related dynamic imagery outperforms non-brand-related dynamic imagery on higher order advertising outcomes in print ads.
