That Blue Square Thing

Creative iMedia

This page is part of an archive of the old iMedia spec – the one that existed until Summer 2023. People seem to find the resources helpful and I've had a number of requests to put them back online. I should think they'll stay here until I'm confident that the new spec is properly covered. Please be aware that this is out of date material and may not apply in the same way to the new iMedia syllabus.

A possible tool for making mood boards digitally is Milanotewiki link (it's free, but you have to sign up). I've not used it yet, but it looks like it might work.

It's possible to make moodboards that only work digitally. Here's an example of a mood board made up only of soundswiki link (YouTube link)

You can find exam questions about mood boards on the exam questions page.
