This type of visual can be so effective that earlier this year Starbucks simplified their logo by dropping their printed name and keeping only the graphic image of the popularly referred to mermaid (technically, it’s a siren).” – Psychology Today – https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/get-psyched/201207/learning-through-visuals
