If something looks good, there’s a good reason why

Why do the same products look better in certain displays than others? Why are some stores so forgettable no matter how many times you see them, while some seize your attention immediately? Deciding what looks “good” is an instinctive, sensory process. Yet behind it lies an intricate science. What are the nine secrets of color, light, and space that make something look good?

Small changes, big payoffs

Praise for Secrets Behind Things That Look Good

“And throughout the book there are interesting tidbits from Lee’s experiences, such as the reflective qualities of various shades. All of this should appeal not only to marketers, but to anybody who’s ever noticed efficient and vibrant displays as well.” — Kirkus Reviews

“We named the exhibit we held last year “Esprit Dior,” or the “spirit of Dior.” We wanted to emphasize that there is more to Christian Dior than meets the eye—that while invisible, the spirit of Dior underpins the brand. Claire Langju Lee’s Secrets Behind Things That Look Good shows why it isn’t only luxury brands that need a company philosophy. And why the most important issue for brands at the end of the day is to make their philosophy seen.” — Lee Jong Kyu, Regional Director, Christian Dior Couture Korea
