If I could produce this type of moodboard within minutes in a Niice board, by uploading few images and using the color pick tool + the text block tool, I'd be very very impressed. If I could export the board as a jpg so as to publish it on a social media account shortly after, it'd be a strong alternative to any Photoshop templates, whether self-created or from creative marketplaces. I can see dozens of such moodboard templates variations being available in-app and even user-generated.

@nadinenbone interesting... besides the circular 'nasty girl' element (which breaks out of the grid) this would be straightforward to do. We're also planning on letting you set background colours on text blocks, which would make swatches easier...

Keep the suggestions coming! So helpful to see specific examples of the kind of thing you'd love a template for in Niice

I guess a rectangular shape for the logo would be ok for starters.

One of the trickiest parts of this is actually coming up with a good naming scheme. It's relatively easy for us to create dozens of templates with different layouts, but the tricky thing is thinking of a good way to name them that isn't simply 'Moodboard 1', 'Moodboard 2', 'Gallery 64', etc. Any suggestions?

The problem is reversed for us: not seeing the different layouts and having to come up with a name! I don't know how complex the layouts are going to be, but names that come up for me would be hinting at the structure of the layouts: "minimalist" for a simple layout with few big sections; "storm" for a complex layout with tons of sections (so a "storm" of information - you're welcome); etc. I'd say: what is the #1 strength of that specific layout? Then make up the name from that angle (bonus point: it'd avoid having a million times the variation of the same tired and old board).

oo these are great thanks! Hmm maybe more abstract names aren’t a bad idea...I’m starting to wonder whether enabling you guys to publish templates you create for anyone to use would be of interest?

Abstract names *are* a great idea :) I really like the idea of a "marketplace" of users-generated moodboard templates! I vote yes on that.
