Design Exploration Template

Design Exploration Template, within the Milanote app

The perfect template for experimenting and discovering possible directions for your next project

A design exploration is a great way to set the visual direction for a new project. It's an effective way to communicate your ideas quickly without having to produce new work—instead, arranging existing images, text and links to evoke the style that you're looking for. You should always take the time to explore your design ideas and concepts before jumping off into your favourite design tools.

Boards in Milanote don't need to be static. Milanote handles images, videos, links and text, so you can really bring your ideas to life. Building a dynamic vision for a project has never been easier, and with Milanote's integrated image search, you can find the perfect images without leaving your board.

Add videos, images, files and more

Moodboards don't have to be static any more, and the best ones are so much more than just images. With Milanote you can easily add videos, animated GIFs, colour swatches, PDFs, design files, fonts and more when you create a mood board.

Save inspiration from around the web

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. Available for Chrome and Safari.

Choose from 500,000 stunning built-in photos

The right images can make or break 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.

Collaborate with your team

Whether you're creating a mood board with other people or you need to get someones approval, Milanote's built in commenting, sharing and notifications make collaboration easy.
