So manifesting and seeing your goal repeatedly helps!


If you are a Content Creator, an Influencer, a Creative Director or anyone in the creative field as a matter of fact, you must be well aware of a mood board. If not, let us break it down for you.

What is a mood board?

A mood board is a type of visual presentation or ‘collage‘ consisting of images, text, and samples of objects in a composition. It can be based on a set topic or can be any material chosen at random. A mood board can be used to convey a general idea or feeling about a particular topic

How do you make one?

1. Brainstorm your theme. You probably have some ideas in mind from the get-go. …
2. Collect your elements. Take your early sources of inspiration, then challenge yourself to think outside of the box to find more. 
3. Review, curate and present your board.

The easiest place to make a moldboard digitally has got to be Canva. The way you can make it here is by following these steps:

  • Open Canva.
  • Open up Canva and search for “Mood Boards” to start a design.
  • Browse templates.
  • There’s a template for every theme with Canva’s wide range of mood board templates. Just click on a template to start designing.
  • Explore features.
  • Design your mood board with Canva’s library of millions of professional elements and graphics. You can add text boxes with different background colors and font styles that complement your design.
  • Keep customizing. 

Your mood board is as unique as you are. Upload your own art, rearrange illustrations and change font styles. Add or remove text, resize elements using our Magic Resize tool and experiment and get creative with your design.

Why do you need it and how does it help?

  • If you are an Influencer, this helps you align your next shoot.
  • If you a brand, this helps you to guide the influencer you have hired in order to be on the same page wit visuals, yet giving them the creative freedom to perform.
  • If you are a photographer, having your client present a mood board to you helps you understand their vision for the shoot.
  • If you are a Stylist, a mood board helps in preparing what outfits you’re planning to source.

And the list goes so on and so forth.
