Hello dear Maja-fans,
Welcome to another exciting challange on the blog.

Today the Swedish west coast has offered us some really great weather. Clear blue sky, lots of sun and sparkling frost, just wonderful!
All inspired by that we’ve made you a winterly Mood board…


This is how we use the mood boards:

Definition mood board – n

[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]

We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. However – we highly recommend you to follow the theme.. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme.

We will pick a winner and present it here on the blog December 25th.

Have in mind that these challenges are a really great way for us to discover new talents and maybe some future Creative Team members…
