May Mood board

Posted by Marie

1 May, 2018 - ,

It is the first Tuesday of May and time for our monthly challenge!

With our mood boards we want to inspire you to create. It can be anything you like, a card, a layout, something altered or maybe a mixed media canvas… We want you, in your own way, to capture the “feel” of the mood board. You can use all the colours or just pick one or two. And of course, your piece should primary be made out of MajaDesign papers!

So… what comes up in your mind when we give you this?

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 May 29th.

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