Clear, Expressive, Bold

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.

Brands in this category don’t shy away from attention. Punchy, straightforward and confident, these companies know how to make a statement and be comfortable in their own skin. Customers are drawn to them for their aura of success, creative tendencies, and their ability to reinvent or breathe life into tired industries or approaches.

Notice how the sample brands below selected strong colors, geometric shapes, and fonts. Instead of a delicate palette or subtle details, they’ve opted for dim, naturally lit photos, heavy-handed color and thick, sharp-edged lines. Combined, these elements produce an energetic look that allows room for experimental variations to keep them looking fresh.

Ideal for these archetypes:

Creator

Hero

Whether they seek this to supplement what they feel they lack themselves, or because they demand the best, this crowd will be particular. They will be put off by anything appearing weak, non-committal or inauthentic. Be decisive and admit when a mistake has been made.

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.

Grace under pressure is a rare and attractive quality. These brands exhibit strength and confidence in arenas where being unprepared or having poor judgment can have very real consequences. While underscored with a serious tone, they’re able to present a polished, chic image to assert a sense of control that garners respect.

Notice in the examples below how the use of neutral colors, sophisticated fonts and clean lines create a calm, composed presentation. Combined with high contrast palettes and shapes with sharp edges, these brands appear pristine and high end.

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.

Powerful, Serious, Balanced

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.

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.

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.

Ideal for these archetypes:

Jester

Lover

Tough, Rugged, Intentional

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 most notable characteristic of brands and audiences that belong on this mood board is a sense of independence. This is the board for DIYers, lone wolfs, MacGyvers and, in more extreme cases, hermits and conspiracy theorists. Members of this group have a highly developed intuition and innate inner strength that keep them laser focused on the task at hand. This combination gives them what others might perceive as a sixth sense. They may be described as extraordinarily skilled, brave, and born to lead. They are practical, disciplined, uninterested in praise, and prefer to live life unimpeded by restrictions placed on them by others.

Brands with this vibe can be 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 quirky, humorous tone, a more technical, Spartan existence, an upscale Bond-like sophistication, or an even-keel, bread-and-butter, comforting simplicity.
