  9. 9. 3. OPTIMIZES CREATIVITY Emotional Branding is about creating more than just a nice logo. It is about flexing your businesses relevant and distinctive attributes and to create something meaningful that symbolizes your brand and customers alike.
  10. 10. The end goal is to offer your audience happiness, despite whatever else they might be feeling. What this means for design is that being attuned to the emotions of your audience, and so much so that you are experiencing their emotions in real time and reacting accordingly, can allow you to create with power and to project the mission of your brand onto whatever you design.

  12. 12. TAKEAWAYS Given the very real task of connecting with your audience as more than a money-hungry-bot, your brand’s greatest tool is something that is (hopefully) secondary to the people behind the platform – Emotions. Standout design has the distinct power to take a user from simply browsing to active clicking. “Great design awakens the senses and takes the experience to the next level, beyond the unexpected.”
