Creating and sharing the right mood is critical for any creative project. In this short course, Nigel French explains what makes up a mood board and how to create your own. Learn how to curate and present a mood board that will keep your project, your design team, and your clients on track.
That, then, brings us to the end of this short course on creating mood boards. In conclusion, I'm just going to recap the usefulness of mood boards. Firstly, they save time and money. Spending a few hours, up front, creating mood boards can save countless hours down the line. Because mood boards are visual, misunderstandings with your client are far less likely to occur, and that means that you're more likely to end up with a finished product that both you and your client are happy with.
Because mood boards provide a visual direction, it's easier for you, the designer, to create mock ups or prototypes. There's no indecision that comes from staring at a blank canvas, and no nagging doubt that you're wasting time on a concept that the client might not buy into. Mood boards allow for more collaboration between you and your client. And because your client is more involved they will have a deeper understanding of your design choices and a greater respect for your craft.
