These past couple of weeks I have been creating a visual moodboard each week to participate in Decor8’s moodboard instagram challenge.
It’s actually been a very relaxing and fun process to go through my collection of magazines. Not only am I finally using my magazines and destashing in a sense (still cleaning out my studio space), it’s also a bit of creative funtime to quickly collage and put pretty things together.
The more I learn about visual inspiration and how it transforms and affects a piece of work, the more I understand and agree that it is essential for the design process. I watched the fabric design course on creativebug and it really clicked for me when listening and seeing how Denyse Schmidt puts a name to her collection and the story she creates to support it. Very cool! BTW, the amazing thing is that you can try creativebug premium free for 14 days… like an ecourse binge watching session even if you don’t plan to continue. But honestly at less than $5 a month, it’s a steal for creatives!
I suppose it is a pinterest board the old fashioned way. Do you create moodboards to start a project off?
