A mood board is a type of collage consisting of images, text, and samples of objects in a composition. They may be physical or digital, and can be “extremely effective” presentation tools.
Graphic designers, interior designers, industrial designers, photographers and other creative artists use mood boards to visually illustrate the style they wish to pursue. However, they can also be used by design professionals to visually explain a certain style of writing, or an imaginary setting for a storyline. In short, mood boards are not limited to visual subjects, but serve as a visual tool to quickly inform others of the overall “feel” (or “flow”) of an idea.
- You are going to create a mood board, based on one color and it’s psychological meaning (using Publication Design, chapter 3, and Color in Motion as resources).
- Each image must be resized in PS for print (ppi 150-300), and you may crop and/or mask images in PS as needed.
- Must include the name of the color and the emotions you are trying to evoke using that color.
- Composition is up to you, but must be well organized, innovative and easy to navigate.
