HOW TO CREATE A MOOD BOARD

         One of the first things we learn in Design School, is to EXPRESS our ideas, inspirations and visions in a VISUAL FORM. Every great projects revolves around the preliminary phase of design. By gathering our inspirations, we create a concept which leads us to the next step in our project. The concept is the BASE LINE of your design.

      1. One of my favourite ways to gather inspirations is through PINTEREST. You can find photos of all kind of inspirations posted by either ordinary folks, designers or decorators (like you and I), bloggers, and even companies. Once you created an account, you can start pinning away! The advantage of having a PINTEREST is that you can separate different inspirations on multiple boards.


      2. If you don't find PINTEREST to meet your requirements, you can create Mood Boards via online softwares such as: 

      3. For a quick and clean way to gather your ideas for a presentation or proposal, you can use Microsoft words (For PC users) and Pages (For Mac users). Simply paste the images in clean a geometrical layout and adjust images sizes. 

These are a few examples of I the concept boards I have presented for design proposals. (Please take note that these images were used for educational purposes ONLY).


4. Mood boards can also be create as a hard copy. They can be done on an illustration board (which you can purchase at your local craft store). Simply print out inspirational photos or cut them out of a magazine and mount them to the board.
