I love creating moodboards! I try to create them at the end of every month so it sets a new fresh inspiration + tone for a new month. Mood boards should be a visual collection of all the things that bring you joy and inspiration. 

 

What you need:
  • Magazines
  • Calendar
  • Photos
  • Colour swatches
  • Tickets
  • Artwork, sketches

 

Here are my 5 best tips for creating an inspirational moodboard:How to create an inspirational Moodboard with Sydney Illustrator Grace from Alittlebitebygrace
  1. Put together a Moodboard Box Creating a moodboard can be overwhelming so I always keep a box in my studio where I throw in all the things now and then. I put in anything that really jumps out at me, even if I'm not quite sure why. At the end of the month, I go through my box and put together to create a a new moodboard. 
  2. Seek inspiration from outside industries For example, if you are in the wedding industry, try to avoid having a mood board that consists entirely of wedding images. I seek inspiration from outside industries like fashion, interior design, textile design, and architecture.
  3. Add your own work Add photos or sketches of your own work. As a creative, you probably have lots of beautiful images of your work, whether floral design, calligraphy, or the photos themselves. Don’t be afraid to include your own work on your mood board. If it’s the kind of work you are really proud of and want to be doing more of, it’s perfect for a mood board!
  4. Find an adjective and stick to it Narrow down 3 adjectives that describe your brand. This can help you narrow your focus for your mood board. For example, if one of your brand adjectives is “vintage,” all the images, patterns, and colors on your mood board should feel “vintage” in some way.
  5. Visualise! Put your moodboard in a place where you can see it often. Visit your moodboard regularly for inspiration!
YAY! I hope this has encouraged you to give it a go! 
VOILA!
LET THE MAGIC UNFOLD.
HAPPY MOODBOARD MAKING!
