a mood board

Welcome to our community of folks who understand the value of working out ideas here in the analog world.

Nothing against the digital world (after all, we are talking to you from a  digital device right now), but there’s something magical about using your hands to work with materials and colors.

We love to share below our online and offline programs. And there might be even physical product to discover;)
Mood Board Course on Domestika with Gudy Herder

Gudy Herder is the founder of the trend agency Eclectic Trends.

Structuring concepts are the backbone of any trend research, and the most used tool to gain clarity on a trend story is a haptic mood board.

In 2015, Gudy was invited to present mood boards at a trend agency in London. And though she had been moodboarding for two decades already, she felt like she wanted to improve her skills and find a more academic background for that presentation.

It came as a surprise that anything on the market suited her needs. Mood boards had helped her, the team, and clients to gain clarity for years, so she decided to share her knowledge and design the first 4-hours workshop program.

This program has evolved into a business program where students worldwide fly to spend one day in Barcelona. Companies such as Inditex, Mango, or Akzo Nobel are a few brands that send their teams to learn this technique during the one-day masterclass.

Gudy also teaches tailored workshops to creative teams at IKEA, Grohe, Cosentino, and the European Design Institute.

"It doesn't matter if you call it a mood board, trend panel, sample board, product panel, or previsualization. The naming is not relevant. Instead, how to spark that engagement and flowing dialogue with a haptic tool counts. ​
Because digital fatigue
is a real thing."
