November’s mood board challenge

Posted by Carita Ruckman

6 November, 2017 -

Hi & welcome to the blog today!

Here in the south of Sweden it’s starting to get chilly outside – so the quilted, warm jacket has been brought out from the wardrobe to help me keep warm these days. But I totally love it..! It’s time for coziness! The cold outside, the darkness – in a lovely contrast of the warmth inside, lighted candles and cozy blankets in the sofa. It sets me in the right, comfy mood and I’m starting to get prepared for Christmas and winter..! Have you started with your Christmas cards yet..?

Let us get inspired by a brand new 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 November 27th.

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

How to participate?
