Consider the Audience

Crucial is a global company and our photography should reflect that. Be mindful of who will be seeing our content and ensure that it is relevant to the audience. 

Factors such as age-range, culture, lifestyle, country, profession, and hobbies, among many others, should be considered when selecting imagery.

Support a Key Message

A photograph always communicates something. When used in marketing, it should support an intended message, whether in an ad, flyer, or infographic.

Images should be slightly cool with a subtle desaturation.

Images should appear natural and relaxed, not posed or stiff.

Avoid images where people, technology, or environment appear dated, uninspired, and uncomfortable.

Avoid improbable, exagerated, and staged images that do not seem genuine.
