One of the most important elements of an Interior Designer’s role is the ability to accurately communicate his/her ideas to clients, demonstrating how their proposed design meets the client brief. It’s of great importance that an Interior Designer can produce professional looking and informative documents that outline the inspiration behind their vision for a space, including the various materials and products which will form a cohesive, practical and visually striking interior. Unquestionably, one of the most cost effective and engaging visual tools at their disposal is the humble mood board.
Get it right, and you’ve got yourself a structured, balanced and stunning visual aid which will impress not only your clients but also your online target audience, peers and let’s face it, your competition. Get it wrong, and you’ve got yourself a messy graphic with too much white space, awkward placement of 2D images (sometimes trying to look 3D which RARELY looks convincing) and a confusing, amateurish looking proposal of your design.
The grid style mood board below was created in Canva. It is structured, cohesive and includes a variety of images that effectively convey a contemporary design scheme. All of the images were chosen and positioned with great intent to produce an informative, impressive and professional result (and you can replace these images to create a new mood board in no time!). We show you how to create this mood board in course #9.
Watch Chapters 1 and 2 of course #9 to learn how to create a new Canva account, take a tour of its interface and find out WHY we chose the images below for our grid style mood board, which includes expert tips on image selection.
