Science just didn’t seem that cool until these brands showed up. By embracing sleek design and sophisticated engineering these brands achieve an unbeatable combination that pushes beyond a product’s functional purpose. With the end users in mind, they strive to create a truly unique and enjoyable experience, setting them apart from their practical, bare-bones competitors. Attracting the attention of those “in the know” may well be a prerogative for companies looking to create a buzz around their ingenuity.

This look would be appropriate for brands in industries dominated by technology or those being disrupted with new philosophies and solutions. Notice how many of the brand samples appear approachable and energetic by bringing in a human component in contrast with high-tech devices. The color palettes are bold, bright and modern or fresh, clean and neutral. They have freedom to use unique fonts with crisp lines that speak to their creativity and engineered precision.

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.

Naturally sleek, these brands have a gift for making a statement without shouting for attention. Their elegance and clarity attracts an audience with picky palettes who yearn for the best in whatever products or services they seek.

When it comes to feel, nuance and subtlety are weapons in the hands of these brands. Thoughtfully selected type styles, colors and textures are woven together to create a rich, layered experience. Brand experiences can be further enhanced with clever wording and unique scavenged materials that help share a story that goes beyond the product or service being offered.

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.

Nothing is more attractive than a confident, independent spirit. Brands with this vibe make their own rules, and often end up defining categories due to their innate magnetism and alluring sense of perfection. Tenacious and seductive, these brands have the ability to persuade with pleasure, using their “it” factor to draw key partners that enhance their offerings even further. It’s not uncommon for these brands to be driven by an individual founder with similar qualities.

Audiences drawn to these brands want to feel attractive themselves—to experience even a hint of what they perceive as the highest echelon in quality and experience. Brands centered around passion tend to use high contrast fonts and images, dramatic photography with stark lighting and serious expressions. A sense of mystery, intrigue and luxury is ever-present, driving the audience’s pursuit of that something more they don’t yet have and desperately want.
