The Explorer



Adventurous and exploration. The explorer has a drive to get uncomfortable, test the limits, self discovery and to prove their strengths/worth.

They don’t like to be cautious and they fear confinement. Indiana Jones, anyone? Other brand examples include Jeep and Patagonia.

One thing I want to note here, you can be an Explorer and live outside of the outdoorsy/sports/hiking vibe. Explorers walk in many forms and aren’t tied to one specific look.

Understand your story, who your client is and then build the bridge to connect the two. It’s magic, I promise.

As a special treat for taking my brand personality quiz, here are a few additional resources that I use for all my branding projects to help you on your way.



Explorer archetypes are super adventurous. When choosing colors for your brand, consider colors that are strong, bold and evoke adventure. This could be earth tones, warm, cool and bright. Overall, make sure that they relate to your target market.


Whenever you’re adding visuals to your brand you want to keep it consistent with your story. Consider writing down adjectives to describe your brand and use those words as search words when looking for imagery or working with a photographer/designer.


Fonts are more than letters and words. They’re characters that project the tone of your brand, how it talks to your audience. When picking fonts, your headline fonts should stand out, paragraph/content fonts should always be legible.
