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.

The images below show how various companies have used color, type, icons, photos, illustrations and textures together to translate their personality into a unique look and feel. As you consider your company’s presence, do these samples achieve the vibe you’re after?

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.

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.

Offering an escape from everyday nuisances and bland experiences, these brands tempt us away from our worries and embrace our inner passions. Whether looking for a literal escape in the form of a vacation, or a metaphorical escape with delicious scents to awaken our senses, we can be assured that each encounter with these brands is a treat. We’re given the feeling that no expense has been spared so we can enjoy the very best life has to offer.

Achieving this level of luxury doesn’t mean everything is laden in gold and ivory. At the core of these brands is the notion of comfort and confidence—helping others feel valued. This can take many forms. But as the samples below show us, selecting sharp lines, contrasting type, warm color palettes and intimate images will convey seductive pleasure and a promise of enduring affection.

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.
