Mood boards: organise your inspiration

Make Marie Kondo proud!

As a Picasso famous sentence says “inspiration exists, but it has to find you working…” He probably knew about the existence of mood boards.

According to InteriorStyleHunter,a moodboard is a visual tool that communicates our concepts and visual ideas. It is a well thought out and planned arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. that is intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.”

Mood boards, the definitive tool

Mood boards are the definitive tool to start organising the inspiration around a project. They also help clients and designers to be on the same page. A client may have an idea about a design, and it could be totally different from what the designer has in mind, so mood boards help to visualise and clarify the options to follow or discard.

Canva, the design platform, also accentuates one of the main advantages of mood boards: “from multi-team projects to building the foundations of a company, learning to use mood boards as part of your initial brainstorming process can help you save time and energy when maturing an idea.”

Also, the Journal of Business Research, affirms mood boards “maintain plurality while also having a directing and aligning effect.” They likewise “connect senses and emotion and provides a link across people in the creative industries and elsewhere.”

Now you know, if you want to keep the style and design harmonious, start with organising your inspiration around a mood board.
