Mood Boarding

Mood Board (n): an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc., intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.

This week, I am playing with mood boards this week to understand the tools, process and capture an aesthetic for future designs. After attending the UX Design presentation from Mel Milloway, I decided to try it to better understand the process and to capture some of the amazing experience that I am seeing online and in some of the interactions. Hopefully this will jump start creativity.

I am using Adobe Spark this week and testing the features of the free tool. My first uses appears that it is similar to Canva. It has the option of creating a short video with stock music. From some of the other mood boards that I’ve seen, Pinterest is definitely a good start and place for the inspiration…but I would like to try to keep a board for professional/play use.

Do you mood board? If so, what tools do you use to “capture the mood” and creative sparks?
