Sexy, Sleek, High End
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.
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.
Ideal for these archetypes:

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.
