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.
During important moments, it helps to know we have someone to turn to for guidance, restitution or even an empathetic ear. Brands in this category strive to provide a safe environment for their customers, accounting for deeper needs that require extra care and attention. Those looking for help will appreciate a gracious approach as they seek a sense of control, make important decisions, or look to reinstate normalcy in their lives.
Creating a supportive atmosphere requires openness and clarity, even in the types of visual treatments that are used. Whether simply on vacation, planning for the future, or dealing with a significant loss, providing clear communication is essential for these brands. This is best expressed through clean, simple layouts, crisp fonts, and minimal decoration. Depending on other characteristics of the brand personality, the look and feel could lean towards a more formal or informal tone. Human touches like illustration and uplifting colors and scents can create a comforting, encouraging vibe.

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.
