Project: Create Your Moodboard

Requirements

Start looking for inspirational portfolio sites on aggregation sites such as Awwwards, CSS Design Awards, Behance or Dribbble. Find a variety of styles that inspire you, take a screenshot of several pages of the website that show the visual style. Create a moodboard of inspirational portfolio websites that will inform your own design later. So what is a moodboard, you ask?

A moodboard is a visual tool used to communicate the overall aesthetic and mood of a project, product, or concept. It typically consists of a collection of images, colors, textures, typography, and other design elements that are arranged together on a board or in a digital format to convey a particular style or feeling.

Moodboards are commonly used in various creative industries such as fashion, interior design, graphic design, advertising, and branding to help designers and clients visualize and communicate their ideas. They can be created using a variety of materials, including magazines, photographs, fabric swatches, and digital images, and can be physical or virtual, depending on the preferences of the creator.

Submission

Submit 1) a moodboard that includes at least 5-8 images of screenshots taken from inspirational portfolio websites. 2) Write a few sentences about why each website inspires you and how you might apply the inspiration to your portfolio site design.

Create a Figma account if you don’t already have one or don’t use it for design. You can drop your exported file to Figma and generate a sharable link. If you use Figma for design, you don’t need to export it – just share the link. 

Please save your Figma link for feedback in your next review session.
