Severalpunk fashion accessories are also being collected tomake use of all possible combinations of media. Afterall resources are arranged on the board, a reflectionperiod takes place

Mood Board, Is A Good Idea

If you're interested in design, chances are you're always looking for inspiration.A mood board (or inspiration board) is a physical or digital collage of ideas that's commonly used in fields like interior design, fashion, and graphic design. It can include just about anything — photography, designs or illustrations, color palettes, textures, descriptive words — anything that helps you define the direction of your project.

Starting the design process with a mood board is a good idea for two reasons:

  1. It helps you. Gathering some ideas and inspiration before you actually start designing can streamline the design process and cut down the time you spend staring at a blank screen. It can also potentially save you from a lot of wasted time and effort by getting client approval on a concept ahead of time — no one likes to pour their heart into a project only to have it rejected by a client.

  2. It helps clients. Creating a mood board to present to clients gives them an idea of what the finished product will look like and allows everyone involved to agree on a direction before too much work is done. It also helps avoid any misunderstandings that may result from trying to describe a design concept verbally. Two people may say the same thing, but mean something completely different, so a visual representation can help everyone get on the same page.
