Positive, Uncomplicated, Amusing

Mood Board

Mood boards are curated groups of images that visualize a vibe. This is the second step in narrowing down a look & feel to effectively convey your brand message.

Playfulness is key for a happy, balanced life. Brands belonging to this board are good-natured and have a knack for creating a sense of ease with everyone they encounter. Your company may be adept at smoothing over difficult situations with a gentle or encouraging word, or finding compromise in the midst of a raging battle.

Brands with this gift of “serenity now” will feature a softer look and feel. You’ll notice the use of energetic or pastel colors and well-lit scenery in the images below. Emphasizing a natural, lived-in feel, and hand drawn type or illustration can provide that essential “human touch” that distinguishes these brands as approachable and uplifting.

TIP: Audiences drawn to this aesthetic are often looking for relief from a frustrating or convoluted experience. Keep in mind that looking effortless on the surface requires extra hard work and superb attention to detail as you develop your products and services. Be diligent in creating the necessary systems to support an excellent customer experience and maintain quality and consistency. Build a culture that attracts people with a positive disposition.

Fun, Energetic, Playful

Mood Board

Mood boards are curated groups of images that visualize a vibe. This is the second step in narrowing down a look & feel to effectively convey your brand message.

Enthusiasm is contagious. Audiences drawn to this feel want to be engulfed in positivity, starting from their first encounter and continuing throughout their experience with learning, purchasing, consuming and, yes, even complaining. Smart brands in this category focus on making each touch point as easy and enjoyable as possible to keep the good times rolling.

These brands are all about removing obstacles to fun. Notice the use of bold colors and unique fonts in the samples below. Their playfulness is overt, not subtle. Some choose to use a combination of shapes, patterns and type styles to add a sense of visual movement to their materials. Others have a little more restraint and focus solely on color and soft edges. There’s no wrong way to present a fun look, so long as it’s consistent and not too heavy-handed (there is a fine balance between playful and wacky beyond comprehension). For best results, be selective about how you express your company’s playful side—don’t try to force the “fun” into every single headline or image.

TIP: Just because a brand is themed around having a great time, that doesn’t mean there’s a lack of intentionality or attention to detail in your content and offerings. In fact, your audience is more likely to have a great time when they can relax knowing that they’re being taken care of every step of the way.

Considerate, Mature, Approachable

Mood Board

Mood boards are curated groups of images that visualize a vibe. This is the second step in narrowing down a look & feel to effectively convey your brand message.

During important moments, it helps to know we have someone to turn to for guidance, restitution or even an empathetic ear. Brands in this category strive to provide a safe environment for their customers, accounting for deeper needs that require extra care and attention. Those looking for help will appreciate a gracious approach as they seek a sense of control, make important decisions, or look to reinstate normalcy in their lives.

Creating a supportive atmosphere requires openness and clarity, even in the types of visual treatments that are used. Whether simply on vacation, planning for the future, or dealing with a significant loss, providing clear communication is essential for these brands. This is best expressed through clean, simple layouts, crisp fonts, and minimal decoration. Depending on other characteristics of the brand personality, the look and feel could lean towards a more formal or informal tone. Human touches like illustration and uplifting colors and scents can create a comforting, encouraging vibe.

TIP: Audiences with an independent streak are difficult to convince. They will tend to be skeptical and do things on their own time. Be careful not to pander to them, oversell them or push them to take action. They tend to be interested in high quality, high value offerings and ignore what could be perceived as a waste of time. The more transparent you are, and the more room you give them, the happier they will be.

Lighthearted, Sweet, Relational

Mood Board

Mood boards are curated groups of images that visualize a vibe. This is the second step in narrowing down a look & feel to effectively convey your brand message.

Like a breath of fresh air, these brands are surprisingly effective at cutting through categories where stuffy, overcomplicated, unfair or rule-laden institutions have dominated. With customer happiness at their core, these brands convey a cheerful disposition and draw in scads of users who may have felt neglected, mistreated, bored, or frustrated with the powers that be.

Brands oozing positivity often use color and bold fonts to call attention to what they might consider the better, easier choice. A playful tone, bubbly spokesperson and simple messaging seals the deal for those wary of dry content or legalese. Lots of wide-open spaces and clean layouts drive home a reassuring vibe of simplicity and freedom.

Clean, Simple, Friendly

Mood Board

Mood boards are curated groups of images that visualize a vibe. This is the second step in narrowing down a look & feel to effectively convey your brand message.

People are drawn to the sense of camaraderie, transparency and easygoing nature these brands provide. They feel at ease and like part of a community.

As seen in the brand samples below, this vibe can be achieved with colorful palettes, simple geometric shapes, and expressive photos.

Tip: Clean, minimalist design is highly appealing but can be difficult to execute well, especially in the early days of business. Every detail counts—be judicious with the quantity of words on a page, and select your imagery, icons and fonts with care. Be careful not to oversimplify your look, as you risk being bland and forgettable.

Scientific, Energetic, Approachable

Mood Board

Mood boards are curated groups of images that visualize a vibe. This is the second step of narrowing down a look & feel to effectively convey your brand message.

These brands have a natural ability to bring people into their process, presenting their work as fascinating discoveries and allowing others to join in their excitement. Though they may appear more laid back on the surface, these companies hold themselves to high standards, working hard to account for details that others may have missed.

Notice that many of the brand samples focus on people using their products more than on the products themselves. This is a great strategy, especially for companies with a product or service that is not very tangible. Humans bring the energy. The excitement of the outcomes they can achieve with these brands is reflected in the writing and emphasized with bold, bright and modern colors.
