An imageboard or image board is a type of Internet forum which operates mostly via posting images. The first imageboards were created in Japan and inspired the creation of a number of English language imageboards. They are based on the textboard concept.

  • A collage of pictures, illustrations, or brand imagery to visually communicate aspects of design intent
  • They are used to visually convey an essential description of design aesthetics, style, audience, or context.
  • Images convey the particular styles, colors, products, brands, and environments associated with the designer’s interpretation of a given aesthetic.
  • A user-based image board portrays a target audience, conveyed through their clothing, preferred brands, environments, transportation, and social interests.
  • An environment-based image board visually shows sample interiors, furniture, lighting, fixtures, and conveys color palettes and atmospheric tone.
  • The creation of image boards can serve internally as a consensus artifact for design teams, representing an agreed-upon version of a design aesthetic or context.
  • Externally, image boards are powerful tools for communicating design intent to clients, clarifying an aesthetic direction or targeted audience.
