Designers Just Want To Have Fun!

Hey all of you designers out there!

No matter your major or occupation, I’m talking to you!  The one with the eye for good design when you see it!  The design student with no studio for the summer! commence Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out” for summer!  schoooool’s out for good!  The one who just loves to see and create good design!  Olioboard, an easy online moodboard creator, and Wayfair are hosting a competition together soon!  What is that competition?  Well, you’ll have to stay tuned to the Olioboard website on Monday June 11 to find out.

In the meantime, you’ll remember the post I did about creating a quick and easy moodboard via a few months ago.  Well, Olioboard has some awesome new features to help push your creativity right along! I got uber excited yesterday when I opened an email from them which showcased the new features, and I headed over to test them out!

I love the new background feature! It allowed me to choose a background I like and continue creating from there!  This room, with it’s “repurposed” feel, was just right for Old World New Girl!  Doesn’t it look so fancy?!

What’s wrong?  You’ve never created a moodboard before?  Well Olioboard makes it quite easy.  Sign up for a free account, and go from there!  You can choose backgrounds:

You can choose accessories:

You can even do one of my favorites and find furniture from your favorite designers and manufacturers, photoshop the background out, and upload the it to Olioboard!
