    The Limn Clothing answer for this is , aesthetics , aesthetics and more aesthetics! We wanna see unusual clothing, vintage clothing, modern clothing and anything in-between! How does it look in different environments, different venues can we make the picture even better? Furniture, lighting, space how does it all incorporate to make a cool idea in your head? Can we take inspiration from the way it was styled in the 90's, what was it about low resolution camera's of the 2000's which made something work better than it does now? Why does it look more organic and how can we bring that answer into 2023!

    Getting Started

    Creating an inspiration board is easy, and it doesn’t need to be complicated. You can start by finding images, quotes, and words that inspire you, and collecting them in a digital or print format.

    Instagram and now Pinterest are the obvious go-to's currently. Follow accounts focused on visuals rather than personal experiences. Get your feed suggesting you content and not people's personal lives and your off to a good start. (May we suggest a new account, if your account is crushed by the algorithm already)

    Whilst you have endless content at your fingertips, it can almost be out of touch, if you can never physically appreciate or see such visuals in person, due to location or cost of such experiences. So don't forgot your eyes / life is always the biggest inspiration. Take pictures on your phone as you go along. Nice building? Snap it. Nice interior? Take that picture. Weird interaction in the city? Remember the moment and take that pic. Ikea is great for inspiration and concepts too, so do not limit yourselves. Be collaborative with others appreciating various reference points they give you it may just help assist your vision and the way you interact.

    Once you have a collage of references it’s time to start creating your board. You can use a physical board or create a digital inspiration board. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages, but it’s important to choose the one that best suits your needs. If you’re creating a physical board, consider using construction paper, photos, and other materials to create your board. If you’re creating a digital board, you can use a website like Pinterest or Canva to create your board.

    Decide on a Theme

    Before you start creating your board, it’s important to decide on a theme or concept. Are you trying to create a board that inspires creativity? Or are you trying to create a board that is focused on travel? Deciding on a concept or theme will help you narrow down the images and references you use to create your board. This will also help you stay focused on creating a board that serves a purpose.

    Choose a Variety of Images and References

    Once you have a concept or theme for your board, it’s time to start choosing images and references that best convey that concept. Choose a variety of images and references that represent different aspects of the concept. Don’t limit yourself to one type of reference or image. Be sure to include a variety of references and images, including words, colors, visuals, and more.

    Organize Your Board

    Once you have the images and references for your board, it’s time to start organizing them. Put them in a visual space that you would like to see. We have ours in the studio. You may see visuals of our moodboard from time to time on our story or just through content we post. But we all have a constant digital evolving moodboard on our smartphones. We use a printing technology app (No free ad here) to print out our images and stick them up. Or you can use canva or pinterest to create a digital space of imagery.

    Final Touches

    Once you’re happy with the layout of your board, it’s time to add the final touches. You can add colors, textures, words, and more to make your board look and feel complete If you need. We don't we let the pictures do the talking. But whatever works for you is what matters.
