My Business Moodboard

A classic, timeless moodboard. Filled with shades of pink, navy and bold typography.
Happy Friday! :) I'm so excited to share with you a glimpse of the branding concepts behind the business I'm starting this year. It's such a great feeling to see all the work you've put into something start taking shape. I've been working on the logos as a project for my graphic design class, and I may show a sneak peek when I get close to finishing them ;)

Without giving away too much information, here's what I'm aiming for as an overall feel for the brand:

  • Classic and timeless
  • Appeals to both males and females
  • Affordable quality products

I wish I could share more details, especially the name, but some more items need to be finalized before that can happen. Still, I can’t wait to share more of this project as it progresses with you all!

January Moodboard

January Moodboard
Fresh. That's the word that comes to mind when anyone says the words January or New Year around me. A new year. A clean slate. A fresh start. This January moodboard is inspired by fresh pastels, new growth, and dreams put into action. If you didn't know any better, you might have thought that this moodboard was for a spring month, like May!

I've heard so many people say that 2015 is going to be a great year. I know that I've said it soooo many times myself, but I can't help it! I feel different. I feel like big things are going to happen. That's why my mind automatically goes to the word Fresh when I think of January. Everything is clean and new, a pen on a smooth new page.

I'd like to know what you guys think! What's one thing you're looking forward to this year that makes 2015 different than all of the previous years? What are you going to change to live the life you want? Let me know in the comments! :)

December Moodboard

December Moodboard | The Kardia Blog
It's the last month of 2014. Can you believe it? I feel like this year went by in the blink of an eye! The month of December is split into two parts for me. The first half is full of due dates, projects, finals, and one crazy sleep schedule. During this time, the weeks seem to drag on and go by fast all at the same time. Does that make sense? Then comes Christmas break. Oh, the joy of sleeping in for once and not having to worry about any projects for almost a whole month! The second half of December is full of giddiness and holiday joy. It's family bonding time and staying cozy inside the house while the snow gently falls. Lights illuminate the streets and Christmas music plays everywhere you go. Sometimes I wish this season lasted forever.

November Moodboard

November Moodboard | The Kardia Blog
Is it really November 10 already? That means it's only four more days until our three year anniversary! Yesterday one of my friends took some couples pictures of us. It was probably one of the last nice days before winter really hits, and so I wore a pink dress. Needless to say, when the sun sets, a pink dress with no sleeves is not the best idea. Having some quality pictures of us will be really nice though! This moodboard is not the typical fall colors. I choose this palette because I love that quote "There's no place like home". With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many students (including myself) will be going home for the first time in months! I'm so excited to be able to be with my family again!

To me, November is a time of warmth and love. It's the month where people begin to scurry from their cars and into buildings to avoid the brisk chill. It's the month where laughter and delicious smells escape out of closed houses and into the open air. November is full of warmth. November is the hush before winter.

October Moodboard

October Moodboard | The Kardia BlogOctober is such a cozy month. It's when the air gets crisp, but it's still beautiful out. You get to wear fall boots again along with your favorite chunky sweater. Local coffee shops get filled on Sunday afternoons. Leaves start to change colors, and the wind blows them around. Ovens get warmed up after a summer of rest, the smell of warm baked goods filling the house. Rainy afternoons call for blankets and cuddling and sunny days encourage a quick bike ride. October makes me feel warm, even when the air is turning cold.

September Moodboard

September Moodboard | The Kardia Blog

This time of year is known as the season of back-to-routine for many families. Back to school, back to normal work hours every week, back to warm clothes, back to football season, you name it! For me, it's mainly back to school and back to fall weather, which makes me excited! I love the autumn season! Something about the golden colors and crisp air make me smile. This moodboard really represents how I feel about September in general. There's the mix of school, autumn, but still a hint of summer.
