We decided to create a video tutorial on how we created a Photoshop mood board (via one of our new Photoshop templates – more on this in a separate post!) using Pinterest. This was in response to a lot of requests from Interior Design professionals and students, who kept informing us of their personal challenges when it came to sourcing the right images for their mood boards.
In our mood board course and our new templates for Interior Designers, we always advise you to use the right style and compostion of image in addition to using one of our recommended layouts; whether it’s a grid style mood board, a magazine style or one of our stylised client presentations. And we go into A LOT of detail in our mood board course on the right styles and compositions of images to use.
IMAGE COMPOSITION + STRUCTURED LAYOUT = A BALANCED AND COHESIVE MOOD BOARD
But if you’re struggling when it comes to typing the right search terms or your creative process is feeling uninspired then you’ll feel overwhelmed, a bit lost and lacking in confidence when trying to find those all elusive images; never mind considering their style, size and composition.
So we have shown you in a FREE video tutorial, THE ENTIRE PROCESS that we recently followed (from start to finish) to create the mood board below.
Some of the things we cover:
key search terms
why we selected specific images
image composition & cropping
idea generation and the creative process
plus lots of expert tips
