Your Brand Style is: Timeless Elegance

Classic, beautiful, and luxury feels coming your way.

If Timeless Elegance is your signature brand style, then let’s make sure your branding embodies a real sense of sophistication and quality, so you don’t get caught up in the trend cycle. 

You value a subtle flavour of luxury, high quality and classic beauty. No matter your service, your goal is to make potential customers feel confident that they’re dealing with an established yet contemporary brand, and safe in your capable hands. 

Standard Driven

You serve your customers to the highest standards you can, so it’s important your branding and your website reflects that standard. Timeless elegance design trends combine minimalism and luxury, with smooth animations throughout the website to keep the user engaged. 

Fonts & Colour Palettes 

Picture brands like Rolex, Gucci, Tiffany’s etc. They all combine a classic Serif font for their logos, and partner them with a more modern Sans Serif font for the majority of their website content. 

Typefaces like Playfair Display, The Seasons, and Garamond pair well with the likes of Montseratt, Helvetica, and Lato. 

Whilst I try to minimise the use of script fonts, like Alex Brush, and Great Vibes, if you really like them, then I encourage you to use them as feature text, which isn’t giving important information. Have a look at the more legible script fonts like Sofia, Charm, and Dancing Script.

A restrained colour palette is essential to a Timeless Elegant brand, often sticking with neutral tones like cream, black, and white, and featuring complementary rich tones like burgundy, emerald, and navy. Depending on your style, you might want to add a metallic accent of silver, gold, or copper to add a layer of opulence to your branding.

You can also incorporate elements like marble, textiles, and dark woods, or classic patterns like Pinstripes, or Paisley, which can work really well depending on your services. For example, if you’re an interior design studio, carpenter, seamstress, or any industry that works with certain fabrics or materials regularly. 

The key is to create a brand and visual identity that feels ageless, yet current by carefully considering your fonts, colour palettes, and imagery. Ensure your site features only high quality photography, so that potential clients who come across your site know instantly that your brand provides an excellent service, worth their consideration.

Combining Timeless Elegance with other styles

If you took my Brand Style Quiz, then you might have got a couple of high scoring styles. If you did, then that’s great!

Let's break down how you should approach a combo-result:

Timeless Elegance and Bold Minimalist: As mentioned above, the Timeless Elegant brand naturally veers towards a minimalist style, and both of these styles also require a restrained palette, mostly neutrals. If you’ve scored high in both of these, the key to combining them is to make sure there’s plenty of negative space, and incorporate a Serif font into your typography.

Timeless Elegance and Boho Pretty: There’s an overlap with these two over font styles, as both are drawn to serif fonts, and maybe a touch of a script font. In order to marry the two well, develop a natural colour scheme that aligns with your boho side, but don’t go down the road of illustrations and decorative elements. Keep your interface minimalistic, classic, but warm.
