COURSE DESCRIPTION

Creating a design requires a significant amount of creativity, brainstorming, and organization. Whether you are new to shoe design, or already familiar with the the creation process, design requires time, patience, and inspiration. Importantly, moodboards can help.

Moodboards allow artists, designers, and stylists to visualize their product, and then organize their thoughts and ideas into a concrete concept on the board, which they can then refer back to when creating original designs. This can help with organizing ideas alongside trends and market branding to assist in the creation of a saleable product that customers want to buy.

Building a moodboard can be as simple as gluing photos to a pasteboard but it is crucial to consider the elements, expression, emotion, and value of the components included. In this guide, you will learn to carefully consider style, content, and goals, so that you can create a moodboard that adds value to your project. This should help you with organizing creative thoughts, finding inspiration for new projects to make them more relevant and interesting to consumers, and communicating ideas or designs with others to receive feedback and input.

Reviews

  1. (verified owner):

    Coming into the fashion world, I had just a limited amount of information which in my opinion was not sufficient. Upon reading this course material, I had great in depth information necessary to build my brand in the most respectful manner.
    I was able to bring my ideas on a board to communicate very well. I recommend to others to read the rich information it contains.

  2. (verified owner):

    As a start-up fashion brand, this course provided in-depth and extremely useful information on the importance of moodboards. Having had little design experience, the course has taught me the different ways to approach moodboards, the types of images and materials to include on a moodboard and strategies to help convey design themes and ideas. The included PSD templates are also very helpful for those looking to create a digital moodboard. Highly recommended to anyone looking to start their own fashion label, or anyone interested in the different steps involved in the fashion design process. I look forward to completing the other courses on offer.
