I am feeling quite accomplished today. I just finished my mood board for my first project and I really like the look of it.
I have to tell you that it was a mission in itself because I had a little bit of a creative block, but from the experience, I learnt:
- The process takes a long time. You have to experiment with different positioning on the board and when you have a bit of time away from it, you can feel more inspired.
- You have to have all of your work out. This process can get a little messy, but by having all your work out, you can select what pieces are the most relevant to your work.
- Be selective. You can’t fit everything on a mood board, so you have to be critical of what work is needed. A good process is to put all your work on the board and then take things off that are not really relevant.
- Keep it in theme with your work. There is no point including presentational techniques and fonts which you have not used before, so take inspiration from your book instead of making something new.
This is what I have learnt from doing my mood this time, but I hope next time I will be more inspired for it to come more easily to me.
