Do The Twist - Moodboard by Kayla King |
I’m working on a really fun project right now doing graphic design and illustration for a local business in San Luis Obispo. The end product will be an A-frame sidewalk board used for advertising in a very visible part of the downtown area. I’m really excited about this one. The client wanted something 60′s inspired with lots of color and texture. This is the mood board I put together for the project. Can’t wait to share more!

Moodboard: getting outside |
This month, I’m taking a label design class on Skillshare with Jon Contino. It’s been really fun so far. The first part of the assignent was to decide on a brand you’d like to make a lebel for and then put together a mood board to guide the design. I chose a local farm who makes fantastic juices and sells them at our local farm stand, but whose packaging could use a little spicing up.

I’m in the sketching phase right now and I’m focusing the design around hand-drawn type, fresh colors you might find in an orchard, and the idea of using a kraft packaging tape with the ability to simply write in or put a tick mark in a box next to the flavor in order to keep prosuction costs down (only using one label instead of a different one for each flavor of juice).

If you’d care to follow my progress or see the other pieces from the class, you can click here.

Lost and Found - Moodboard by Kayla King |

I put this little moodboard together as inspiration for a project I have coming up. I can’t say too much about it right now, but rest assured, I’ll be sharing the final pieces once they’re all completed. The project called for a moody, earthy palette, with pops of gold and vintage type. We’ll see how it comes out!

That Summer I Loved You - Moodboard by Kayla King | tinyinklings.comI’m trying to flex my design muscles a little more lately, so I’m going to be sharing some of the digital mood boards I often put together. This board inspired by a memory of the summer between high school and college. That last fleeting moment where you are free before you land, where you are weightless and can almost fly.
