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.

Caring, Warm, Dependable

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.

A warm embrace from a friend in a time of a need, the scent of freshly cleaned laundry, the feel of home. These brands create a space of safety and comfort that emulate our most cherished experiences. While their presence may not be readily apparent, companies in this category are there to help in the ways we want or need. They will tend to take one of two approaches: to wait in the background and only appear when we need them, or to usher us in, guiding us carefully and compassionately to where we are trying to go.

Depending on other characteristics of the brand personality, the look and feel could lean towards a quirky, humorous tone, a more subdued and serene presence, or a comforting, folksy simplicity. Nevertheless, warm or neutral colors, smiling faces, soft or rounded edges and crisp fonts, and clean, organized layouts will provide a feeling of support and care.

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.

Silly, Playful, Endearing

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.

Some might see the world as a cold, unforgiving place. But when they stumble upon brands in this category, even their biggest fears and worries melt into the background. The gift of ridiculousness and optimism is powerful when used appropriately. These brands do a phenomenal job balancing the bizarre with the practical, while also providing moments of simple human connection. By infusing humor into all they do, they provide a break from the bleak or mundane to lift their customers’ spirits and help them see things from a different perspective.

Brands with this vibe can take on many forms, but will rarely present themselves as being stuffy or posh unless it is done so in an overtly exaggerated fashion. They are instantly relatable rather than layering nuance and wit, as other similar mood boards depict. Depending on other characteristics of the brand personality, the look and feel could lean towards various levels of bizarre or whimsical.

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.
