Description/Abstract

There are many claims that the Golden Ratio is the most esthetically pleasing ratio to look at, but most of those claims are purely anecdotal. We sought to verify that figures containing the Golden Ratio tend to be preferred by audiences over figures that do not contain the Golden Ratio. I researched and designed a short survey that would provide statistics to help us confirm these claims. The results were statistically analyzed and were significant.
