What is a moodboard and why should I create one?

A moodboard (or mood board) is the perfect way to set the visual direction for a creative project. Designers, illustrators, photographers, filmmakers and all types of creative professionals create moodboards as a free-form way to communicate the "feel" of an idea.

But moodboards have come a long way from the days of attaching printed images to physical boards. Modern digital moodboards are dynamic, flexible and shareable, unlocking a whole new world of creative possibilities. Create a moodboard in Milanote.

Choose from over 500,000 free built-in images (or upload your own!)

The right images can break or make a moodboard, and finding them is half of the job. That's why Milanote integrates with Unsplash to give you instant access to a huge library of free professional photos to drag and drop into your boards.

  • Search by keyword or choose from images that are automatically recommended based on the content of your boards.
  • Upload your own images with a simple drag and drop interface (Milanote supports all common image formats including JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG and many more).

Getting content into Milanote is easy—just drag or paste any image (or website) into your boards. But to make it even easier, you can install the Milanote Web Clipper to instantly save images, videos or links to your boards from any website you visit.
