Flora's moodboard

Flora's moodboard - student project

Dylan, thank you so much. I'm beginner in design/illustration, and this course made me think about my taste and my style. 

I actually don't keep my inspiration organised, my favourite saved images were everywhere: on Pinterest, Instagram, my phone, and some only in my memory - and I was struggelling to remember the right keywords to find them. And after I put them together, I was surprised to see that they actually make a more or less coherent group. At least, it makes sense to me. :D

And here's what I discovered: 

Texture - Objects usually have  blunt colours with no texture, not even shading... or black outlines with rich texture, but no colours. In some cases, there two are mixed, which creates a very interesting athmosphere, I think I will experiment on this more.

Colours - My palette is dominated by blue, red and mustard yellow, so "mixed colours" from the color palette, such as purple, orange, or green rarely appear. This creates kind of a raw feeling when I put the dominant colours together, which I like pretty much.

Shapes - when colours are used, I prefer geometric shapes, however objects with only outlines tend to be organic. 

 

So that's it. I had a lot of fun putting it together.
