Tips and tricks to help improve your moodboards

Using colour schemes is an easy way to create great moodboards. Decide on a theme, and source anything in that color range. It can create a beautiful feel and mood to a creation. Keep your older moodboards to remind you of how far you’ve come with designing. Play around with sizes, it creates dimension. And try overlapping images to create a collage affect. Study moodboards you find inspirational, and ask your fellow members and connections for advice.

With the SampleBoard moodboard editor, you can create your own unique colour palette by following these easy steps:

Creating your own unique colour palette

You can create your own customised and unique colour palette by using the eye dropper, shape, colour well, clone tool and following these steps:

  • Select the eye dropper tool and sample your desired colour from an image on your moodboard. (you will notice the colour well’s foreground colour has switched to your selection)
  • Select the shape tool, choose the rectangle and click ‘create shape’ ( a white shape with your sampled colour border will appear on your moodboard canvas)
  • Go to the colour well and switch the foreground colour so that your sample colour becomes the filling and the default white colour becomes the border.
  • You have created your first unique colour swatch for your palette!

Note: the foreground colour (default black) of the colour well is the border colour of any shape. The background colour (default white) is the filling of any shape. So when you create your colour swatch make sure the foreground colour is white so that you don’t get stuck with a terrible border around your shape. You can do this by toggling between the two.
