Join Emily Kay for an in-depth discussion in this video Mood boards, part of Photoshop for Web Design.
- [Instructor] Being a graphic designer…requires a certain level of telepathy…to fully understand a client's vision…before starting a project.…Using mood boards is the next best way…to visually communicate ideas between parties…and ensure everyone is on the same page…before getting too deep into a design.…Let's face it, at the beginning of a project,…the spectrum of web design possibilities…is so wide that you have no choice…but to start to narrow your focus.…Often, each person's vision of modern or clean…may differ widely.…
It's often most practical and efficient…to narrow the focus by translating…those obscure terms into visuals…that all parties can come to agreement to.…A great way to achieve this is by using mood boards.…While the shape of a mood board varies greatly,…the goal is fairly common.…You want to confirm that everyone is on the same page…by hanging on to what has promise and chucking what doesn't.…It is important to note that these are not designs.…Make sure that your client understands…that anything shown in this step is purely for discussion.…
