High End, Modern, Hip

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.

Embodying a chic, effortless vibe is a rare talent. What separates these brands from the rest is their unlimited creativity and casual confidence. Their innate magnetism, foresight and enhanced ability to express themselves makes them natural leaders and trendsetters. Inspiration may be drawn from history, natural science, cultural traditions or imagery—any microcosm stumbled upon that can be observed, remixed and reimagined.

Brands with this vibe have an underlying strength and futuristic energy. This can be best expressed in a number of creative ways, but will rarely include elements that could be considered “soft,” to avoid appearing timid or underwhelming. Instead, bold color palettes, blocky shapes, energetic brush strokes and textures create a dynamic world that can evolve as quickly as the next great idea strikes.

Powerful, Serious, Balanced

Mood Board

Expertise is difficult to imitate—authority even moreso. These brands aspire to find answers that have evaded all others, to provide resolution for difficult situations, or to correct what hadn’t been done right the first time. They present a reasonable and responsible image, referencing data and drawing on wisdom gained from years of experience and keen observations.

Brands with this calm, deliberate approach are best represented by an equally serene visual identity and tone of voice. Neutral or classic colors, simple layouts, crisp fonts, and minimal decoration create a feeling of balance and trustworthiness.

Witty, Ridiculous, Sophisticated

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.

Dry humor isn’t for everyone, but it does a fine job getting a point across without bringing down the mood. These brands have a knack for spotting oddities and inconsistencies that can make us laugh and think critically simultaneously. Those drawn to this approach tend to appreciate the intellectual sparring that surrounds brands in this category. Some may watch in amusement while they poke fun at any number of topics or personalities, from political or religious leaders to daily life occurrences. They provide a charming alternative to conversations that could otherwise be difficult, dreadful, or just plain awkward.

Brands with this vibe can take on many visual forms. Tonally, they may come across as posh, stuffy or uppity at first, only to pepper in random curse words or absurd concepts that keep the audience on their toes, trying to anticipate their next jab.

Edgy, Funny, Insatiable

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.

The combination of edgy and funny can be expressed in a number of styles, ranging from parody to overt and absurd. Something seemingly innocent might be anything but(t) upon closer inspection.

Depending on the humor, these brands can take on many styles, but will tend towards either a strong, in-your-face appearance with bold fonts and colors, or juvenile scrawling like the drawings found on middle school students’ notebooks. A more sophisticated brand with other archetypal characteristics might take on a stuffy appearance to catch people off guard when their real personality comes out.

Informed, Scholarly, Prudent

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.

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.
