Mood Board

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

The quest for knowledge in the modern world often starts with a simple online search that sends users traipsing down a rabbit hole of distraction and misinformation. These brands combat the frustration generated by the firehose of data that users are often subjected to by creating a more organized and factual experience. Their diligence supports more effective learning and vetted answers. This look would be appropriate for brands in highly regulated industries, such as healthcare or cyber security, that need to create an atmosphere of trustworthiness with rigorous attention to detail.

Brands with this vibe need to portray authority, diligence and precision, and therefore tend towards a clean, Spartan-like image. Depending on other characteristics of their brand personality, companies in this category will want to opt for a sparse, modern look to showcase their perceived futuristic foresight, or an image that hints at a historic heritage, studious tendencies and depth of knowledge.

Ideal for these archetypes:





Analytical, Clean, Detail-oriented, Expertise, Historic, Intelligent, Modern, Practical, Precise, Smart, Scientific, Studious, Trustworthy

TIP: Clean, minimalist design is highly appealing but can be difficult to execute well, especially in your early days. 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.
