What Is a Mood Board? Organize Your Visual Inspiration

A mood board is a visual idea organization method for creative or design projects. Similar to inspiration board or idea board, it combines images, textures, design materials, or clippings from webpages or magazines that are relevant to a specific topic. The purpose of a mood board is to set the visual tone for the project to help designers and creatives brainstorm, share creative ideas with colleagues, and communicate with clients.

Creativity and inspiration often seem very difficult harness, but creating a mood board can help you organize your ideas and bring them to life. Take advantage of digital or online tools and use the drag-and-drop feature to organize a number of unique elements from multiple sources into a mood board. Creating a mood board is an effective way to convey your ideas to the world. 

In regards to design planning, NoteLedge has you covered. Whether you are working on interior styling, room decor, or fashion designs projects, NoteLedge makes a perfect moodboard maker to organize all your inspiration, content ideas, and brainstorming in one single workspace.

Collect and Organize Ideas

To create a mood board from scratch, use NoteLedge's web clipper to access online source or inspiration like Pinterest, Unsplash or Google, and clip images or texts to your notes right away. You can also add images from your own image libraries and organize the array of design elements to make a beautiful mood board.

Set the Color Tone

The right color choices can make your design eye catching. Get trending color inspiration from Pantone, or use the color palette generator to pull colors from an image you like. Set the color tone for your design and arrange design elements according to the color combination.

Add Your Own Thoughts

You can easily experiment with different looks and layout with a digital mood board. Take notes, annotate on images, add design assets,  or sketch your ideas to record your thought process along the way.

Share Your Moodboard

Save the finished moodboard as an image, or export the entire project in PDF format with multimedia content included. You can also present your mood board design in slideshow mode to communicate ideas efficiently with your design team or your clients.

Tips: Make a Difference with Pinterest

Pinterest is one of the best sources of inspiration for creatives to find inspiring designs. You also can find beautiful moodboards samples as reference or mood board templates to get your creative juices flowing. 

While Pinterest is a great tool for collecting inspiration, its limitations make it difficult to add your own ideas and interact with images. To solve that problem, NoteLedge has an in-app web clipper on the iPad version that you can use to directly clip images from Pinterest into your notes using a drag-and-drop interface without switching between apps. On the Windows version, NoteLedge makes it easy for you to drag images and texts from a web browser and drop to your notes. You can trace the webpage and pin source and view more information later.
