From Inkblot Beauty Editorials to Personality-Probing Timepieces

 - Jul 12, 2012
These Rorschach-inspired innovations highlight the iconic appearance of the famed psychologist's test.

Featuring the famous inkblot design, these innovations are aesthetically dynamic and immediately recognizable. Known for their symmetrical look and slightly messy style, the inkblot has shown up everywhere from home furnishings to beauty editorials. Making a statement all of its own with regard to the history of psychology, and hinting at a somewhat invasive form of study, designs which integrate the inkblot style are eye-catching. Though the original Rorschach tests featured black and white creations, many spin-offs of the style are incredibly colorful in design, and take advantage of the already unique look of the original inspiration.

It's long been thought that symmetry is an incredibly attractive aspect of design to the human eye, and these inkblot creations provide great evidence for this idea.
