Bigg Buzz describes a Mood board as “a collection of designs, images, shapes, symbols, and colours that represent your brand. A mood board will typically stem from brand messaging or a unique value proposition, and from there, it will likely evolve into a style guide, giving the brand a foundation to go off of when creating new marketing materials, products and more.
Having a mood board for your brand ensures all marketing and promotional materials are consistent and portray the same message.”So during this process, typically, we agree with the client on the type of font to use, the images, colours and inspirational sites, to fully establish the look and feel of the website.
