Offline mood boards vs online mood boards
Conceptualizing visual ideas are an essential element of the creative process to ensure that client brief and concepts and are on track throughout a project. Traditional mood boards are time-consuming and tedious to create, requiring physical samples and pictures of products to be sourced, collated and compiled into life-size concept boards. These presentation boards have to be presented in person, which incurs time and travel costs, plus they need to be adjusted or re-created following client amends, as well as storage of bulky boards.
SampleBoard, which launched its site in 2010, digitized the process by providing an eco-friendly, time efficient web-based solution which can be accessed from the comfort of your own creative space. It provides image import and upload functionality, mood board sharing and exporting, folder management and privacy options.
In essence, SampleBoard sits in between the limitations of PowerPoint and the complexity of Photoshop, making it the perfect online software solution for designers globally, helping them produce better work, more quickly and effectively.
SampleBoard is actively used by interior designers, wedding planners, fashion designers, landscape architects and more and has had immense growth globally, with its biggest user base in the US, followed by the UK, Australia and the Netherlands.
