Project 4 – Moodboards

These are my three moodboards I made for the Bees and Butterflies topic. Each board helps show a diffraction I could go with designing the packaging for this project, and shows some things that have inspired me. The 1st board is based off a vintage theme, the second is the Turn of the 20th Century and the 3rd is based off the Retro area. I have decided to base my project off the vintage board. Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 12.55.07 PM Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 12.55.56 PM Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 12.56.24 PM


Bees & Butterflies Mood Boards

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 9.26.18 PMFor this campaign the focus is on building gardens and creating a safe environment for the growth of both bee and butterfly populations. The target audience for this campaign is aimed at mostly female gardeners with ages ranging from 30-50 years old. With that in mind I went ahead and thought about what someone in that demographic would want in a kit for this cause and what designs would appeal to them. Most of the women in this group probably have children so I wanted to make sure that my designs and products are ones that include the whole family. I could easily see the women in this group being enthusiastic about getting their kids outside to help out with the garden.

For my first mood board, I went with a mod 50’s theme. The flat graphics and pastel colors work really well for the garden theme and I think that this style would tie in nicely the domestic woman/ family efforts in the garden campaign. As far as packaging goes for this, I think it would be fun to print on a water bottle, canvas tote bag, make some seedling packets, and a coupon book to the greenhouse to help get a jump start on the garden.

I think that this style brings a youthful, fun side to the campaign and could easily be redone to fit contemporary standards.
