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.
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. In this way, the audience becomes part of the experience in a more intimate way, bonding with the brand through their own intellect and imaginations.

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.
