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.

Brands in this category don’t shy away from attention. Punchy, straightforward and confident, these companies know how to make a statement and be comfortable in their own skin. Customers are drawn to them for their aura of success, creative tendencies, and their ability to reinvent or breathe life into tired industries or approaches.

Notice how the sample brands below selected strong colors, geometric shapes, and fonts. Instead of a delicate palette or subtle details, they’ve opted for dim, naturally lit photos, heavy-handed color and thick, sharp-edged lines. Combined, these elements produce an energetic look that allows room for experimental variations to keep them looking fresh.

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.
