WGSN Boutique contains a unique personal workspace where you can organise your favourite inspirational images, CAD files, artwork, colour palettes and articles into individual collections, according to your chosen themes. You can even create bespoke digital moodboards, which you can print out and stick to your wall. If you want to get really creative you can even display them in your store. Here’s how…
Every image, CAD, artwork, palette and article on WGSN is saveable to My WGSN. Simply roll over the item you wish to save and click the heart icon to send it to your workspace. Alternatively you can open an item (as pictured) and click the heart from there. In this view you can also print and download the item in hi-res by using the print and arrow icons to the top left of the viewer.
Once you’ve saved your items, click on ‘My WGSN’ at the top-right of your screen to go to your personal workspace. Here you will find all the items you have saved displayed in the ‘Recently Saved’ space. From here you can organise your items into individual collections, according to your chosen themes.
To create a collection, click the ‘Create a new collection’ button.
You will be prompted to name your collection (change the name at any time by rolling over the name of the collection in the left-hand menu and selecting the pen icon). Once your collection is named it will appear in the left-hand menu.
To move items into this collection, select items by checking the boxes on your images (you can save time by using the ‘Select all’ function) or articles and dragging them into the collection. This action will copy the items into your collection; if you wish to delete them from ‘Recently Saved’ you can either click the trash cans on the images or choose ‘Select All’ and delete.
Making a moodboard is just as easy. Select the moodboard tab next to the collections tab and then click ‘Create a new moodboard’. You will again be prompted to name your moodboard and that name will appear in the left-hand menu.
To begin making your moodboard, select its name from the menu and then click ‘Edit’. This will either open your moodboard in a new window or tab, depending on your browser’s behaviour.
Once in the moodboard workspace all your image collections will be listed to the top left. Pick the collection you wish to use items from and they will appear bottom left where you can scroll through and select your items. Drag each one into the workspace. Here you can resize your items, layer them and even add digital sticky notes.
To print your moodboard, return to My WGSN and select the name of the moodboard from the left-hand menu. A preview of your moodboard will appear in the right-hand pane, and to print it simply select ‘Print’ to send it to your chosen printer. From here you can also select ‘Edit’ to continue to work on your chosen moodboard.
