Mood boards show colors, images, structures and moods that are to be captured in a design project, website, series, film or elsewhere. Creating a mood board means trying to capture a certain style with the help of a collage. Moodboards can be used by customers to show designers or producers what they want. It also works the other way around, of course - a mood board can show customers during the planning process what options there are for the ultimately designed product. You have the option of creating the mood board yourself, for example with Photoshop or Affinity Photo. There is also with canva a drag-and-drop web tool.
From the design of the website to the production of an advertisement to entire series of films - the right style can be found with a mood board or various mood boards. Using a collage, photos, images, colors, keywords and other materials are brought together to clarify an idea.

The synonyms mood board, mood board or inspiration board are also used for the term mood board. All mean the overview of graphics, typographies, textures, color palettes and other things that are useful for viewing.
