A mood board is a poster that consists of images that relate to a certain theme. For visual communication.It is used by designers to develop their design concepts and to communicate to other members of the design team.
The search engine that I used was Google images, Getty images.com, and photo search. The keywords that I used for my research is 1950s New York backstreets and shop signs.
To make sure I got good quality images I tried to search for images larger than 350x 250 pixels which means Image is not blurred when you enlarge it to worker on it further.
I used the mood board as inspiration for images to put it in the design box also selected right text and colours according to the theme.
