" We created 2 Tinder profiles and ran them for a period of 2 weeks each. Each profile was identical apart from the photos. We kept the 'discovery settings' the same with an 18-35 age range and 20km distance, with all swiping taking place from a central Manchester location.
"Using the same model, each profile reflected two distinct styles. Profile one was dressed to the nines in on-trend designer clothing and accessories. we used a professional photographer to capture relaxed, smiling images of our model."
"Profile two took the focus away from the clothes, with the photos here showing no indication of style. We kept the photos basic, opting for a classic moody selfie with little attention to background or time spent getting the shots."
