Making an inspiration board should help you visualize and make choices along the way. These are just some tips I found helpful while building a brand identity.

These images could include; logo and branding examples, colors, type, patterns, and textures. Any items that represent the business. Searching through magazines that represent the desired style is a great starting point. Take some pictures or scan in the images for the board.
