Start Your Brand Boarding with This Free PSD Template
A few months ago, I started trying to do a little design cleanup on this site and it prompted me to finally do something I probably should’ve done way back at the beginning: create a brand board. Even though it’s a little late in the game, it still turned out to be a pretty useful task. It helped weed out some patterns and colors that didn’t quite mesh with the rest of the site. It inspired some new approaches. I’ve also started doing a stripped down version for creating promo assets for my fonts.
I started out with the free template from Nesha Woolery’s great post How to create a brand board but made some changes based on my own quirks and preferences. I found it easier to use Smart Objects for patterns, wanted a more widely available font for labels, didn’t need an extra section for alternative logos, etc. Since that original template was so useful as a starting point for me, I thought I should pay it forward and offer up my version for download.
The file is available as a PSD created with Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 and you can take a look at the layout below.
