How to create a mood board

How to create a mood board
When trying to convey a design idea to win pitches and get an early sign-off, moods, feelings and visions can be difficult to communicate verbally. So designers will often use mood boards: a collection of textures, images and text related to a design theme as a reference point. Mood boards help others to 'get inside our heads' as they show what you're thinking and feeling about a creative idea and your intended vision for a piece of work.

When putting together mood boards, it's easy (and therefore tempting) to just use Google Images. Real world inspiration such as this can be a very powerful 'convincer' when putting together a board for a client. 02. Real world inspiration is all around us. 03. 04. 05.

Making It Pictures “Making It” is a documentary film that explores the daily struggles of making a living, staying creative, and making it all up as we go along. The film focuses primarily on Eric Fortune, Andrew Bawidamann, and Brian Ewing discussing education, their business model, and the future of Illustration but ultimately asking, what does “Making It” mean to each artist? Andrew Bawidamann, Brian Ewing and Eric Fortune are three excellent artists who are in the middle of their careers. This stage of their journey is the toughest because they’re on the edge of success, “Making IT”. I believe many people in the world can relate to this. The filmmakers goal was to make a film that had universal message. This could have easily been a fluff piece about how cool or successful these artists are. However, our goal was also to inspire. The documentary also features interviews with artists and industry giants such as: Adam Hughes, Tara McPherson , Becky Cloonan, Jon Foster, Greg Manchess, C.F.

Villemot Archives - The Wry Home About 13 years ago, my husband and I were celebrating a certain birthday I won’t share with you when we saw this poster in the window of a small shop. The brilliant green color and bird hat on this wonderful woman stopped both of us. The store was Galerie Documents at 53 rue de Seine. We walked in and spoke to the charming owner, and left with this lady tucked under our arm. Poster illustrated by Rene Gruau The artist, Rene Gruau, was a renowned fashion illustrator who became one of the best known and favorite artists of the haute couture world during the 1940s and 50s. Two lipstick ads by Rene Gruau on either end Gruau’s artwork is recognized internationally in some of France and Italy’s most prestigious art museums, including the Louvre. Bernard Villemot is another French graphic artist we discovered along the way. We love how colorful and fun his images are, and they can be very reasonable if you want to decorate your walls with something different. Villemot in our office the wry home

What's The Greatest Logo Of All Time? | Co.Design | business + design A logo is meant to be a brand's most enduring symbol, a graphic totem that distills a company's essence down into a single graphical mark that is beautiful, flexible, and memorable. Crafting such a deceptively simple symbol is a massive undertaking, so it's no surprise that the majority of the world's logos are so disposable. But when a logo achieves those lofty goals? It's the design equivalent of what Robert Frost once wrote about great poetry: You never get over it. Of course, what's immortal for one person might be boring to another, and that goes double for designers, who tend to be opinionated on the subject. The ones that, as Frost might say, they just can't get over. I ❤ NY: "An N.Y.C. landmark in and of itself" Designed by Milton Glaser for the New York State Department of Commerce, this classic mark has fronted T-shirts and bumper stickers since 1977. That's why Min Lew and Thierry Brunfant, partners at Base, give it their vote for the greatest of all time.
