Create a new (secret) board in Pinterest. Go back through all of your past pins and add the ones that really feel like you to that new board. You can even add some of your own work to the board. If you don’t have a lot of pins yet, try searching for design inspiration, fashion, home, specific colors and even words that describe a mood.
Once you have the Pinterest board together and refined to your favorite pins, create a Canva account or use Photoshop to create a mood board and color palette. I like Canva a lot because you do not have to have the knowledge of using photoshop to create a mood board. You can create a free account and there are plenty of options. Once you get the hang of using Canva, it is quick and simple to produce a variety of design elements. They have so many templates to choose from or you can start with a blank canvas and create your own. Here are some examples of mood boards:
Once you choose a template and add your pins and inspiration, you can easily download a PDF that is print ready. You can use this art on your vision board or keep the file on your computer as a reference of your aesthetic.
Now you can implement it! Use the mood board and color palette you just created to help change the colors on your website, to create a brand logo and even to help theme your color on Instagram!
