Join Sue Jenkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Add moodboard elements, part of Web Design: Efficient Workflow.
- [Instructor] Now, after blocking out…all the content in the digital sketch session,…it's time to add the moodboard elements.…The moodboard you'll recall…has information about all the aesthetic decisions…that were made based on the project goals…including things like colors and fonts,…patterns and textures, photos and other graphic elements.…For efficiency, I like to add a copy of the moodboard…right into the mock-up file.…So if the moodboard was created in Photoshop…like this example here,…I can easily duplicate layers into my mock-up file…by right clicking on one or more selected layers…in the layers panel.…
