I have been making moodboards since I was kid. I used to
steal collect pictures I liked from magazines, special papers, cards, etc and put them together in a collage. Back then they usually didn’t have a theme (although I did make an awesome Gwen Stefani themed one in 8th grade). Nowadays I use them more formally to help me get a feel for where I want to go with a design or sometimes for inspiration in my life.
I created this moodboard for Chelsea and Brut’s wedding stationery I finished back in April. After having the pleasure of attending their wedding, I would say this moodboard ended up being pretty dead on. The image of of the wreath ended up being pretty influential in their design. Do you see it?
