Red face can someone tell me what is the psychological meaning of placing a logo centered.....

In general graphic information, can someone tell me what is the psychological meaning of placing a logo centered, left or right is? I seem to like them all but I want to transmit something to graphic critiques and know-it-allís. Thanks.

traditional marketing would have you believe people tend to read left to right - top to bottom - so the best place would be top left

I agree with you, and I think it should be in balance.. much of text and stuff going on on left bottom, then logo right top.

I think it would be depend on the logo and text. I work up several designs in my business before going into production.

The main reason for logo's is: if a person can read or not, understands English or not. They will recognize a company logo.

I still believe there is something to do with the position.

i've noticed that a lot of "web2.0" sites are starting to center their logo, it seems to fit with the theme of simplicity and easygoingness (i know that's not a word...)
