As someone who loves Wes Anderson movies and hates putting just 3 of the same card in a Magic the Gathering deck, symmetry is something that I’m attracted to. With that, I’d like to give a nice, sarcastic “Thank you” to Braid artist David Hellman for pointing out the asymmetry of the Nintendo Switch logo.
Did you notice the Switch logo is not symmetrical? Each side has a different apparent visual weight, so the logo is "balanced" by eye… pic.twitter.com/rFp34LyOoA

Great, now I’ll never be able to unsee it.
It looks better this way though, because… whoa…
Hellman then provided an example of what the logo would look like if the two sides were exactly even, and I’m finding myself questioning reality and balance itself.
But… but… the right side is definitely bigger, isn’t it? Nintendo is playing mind games with all of us!
