Powerful, Serious, Balanced
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.
Expertise is difficult to imitate—authority even moreso. These brands aspire to find answers that have evaded all others, to provide resolution for difficult situations, or to correct what hadn’t been done right the first time. They present a reasonable and responsible image, referencing data and drawing on wisdom gained from years of experience and keen observations.
Brands with this calm, deliberate approach are best represented by an equally serene visual identity and tone of voice. Neutral or classic colors, simple layouts, crisp fonts, and minimal decoration create a feeling of balance and trustworthiness.
Ideal for these archetypes:
Authoritative, Balanced, Careful, Cautious, Fair, Intelligent, Powerful, Practical, Serious, Smart, Strong, Trustworthy

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.
