As I promised: The final MINA MOKA moodboard - an assignment for the blogging ecourse I am taking right now to dive a little deaper into the world of blogging.
I have always liked moodboards. Looking at moodboards, I mean. But I never made one myself. What you see here was actually my second attempt. For the first one I laid out and arranged all kinds of things on a white sheet of paper - pictures, jewellery, things I made and things I like. But it didn´t really feel right when I looked at it. It wasn´t me. Nor was it MINA MOKA as it is now or MINA MOKA as I want it to be.
So I stepped back, didn´t touch it for two days - and finally decided to start all over again. I looked for pictures that symbolized the mood and energy that made me start this blog. I came up with a different idea of displaying them, something more playful and experimental. I didn´t focus as much on colors or graphic elements as I had planned to. It´s really more about a feeling, mood, vibe, whatever you want to call it. It´s about the energy and joy of a new beginning, a new stage in life. In Hermann Hesse´s words: "Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne" - "In all beginnings dwells a magic force"...
And if you´re looking for some moodboard inspiration by a real pro have a look at graphic designer Breanna Rose´s blog where she shares some of her (digital) moodboards for her clients.
