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"...

Pssst: If you would like to see my e-classmates´ moodboards for their blogs visit the byw flickr pool or the bywbootcamp pinterest board. All moodboards should be pinned there soon...

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.

    The pug and string idea is totally lovely. It feels really playful. Yet the images also show the movement and dynamic. Great board!
