If you’re not familiar with Leonardo Fibonacci, he was an Italian mathematician born in the 12th century. He is known to have discovered the “Fibonacci numbers,” which are a sequence of numbers where each successive number is the sum of the two previous numbers.
e.g. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144…1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 21+34=55 etc.
There is a special relationship between the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci Sequence, here is a surprise: if you take any two successive (one after the other) Fibonacci Numbers, their ratio is very close to the Golden Ratio:
1.61803398875…and so on.
So how on earth does this relate to what we at MEDIAPOP do for our clients? First let’s begin with how that Golden Ratio and Fibonacci numbers can be visualized.
