The contour of a product tells us what it is and is the first aspect we determine on an object. Colour, brand mark, graphical devices and fonts are being noticed later. According to Braun and Braun (1) ‘gloss derives its commercial and aesthetic values from attracting attention’. They state that gloss appears to mimic motion.
