Developments in mixed reality systems in the last decade have provided proof-of-concepts by means of technology tailored usage scenarios. Instead of focusing on the technology required for implementation, we have shifted our focus towards users, investigating the potential impact of such techniques on the actual work practice of industrial designers. Specific activities have been identified during a full ethnographic study conducted by means of Cultural Probes and Workshops with representative participants. We have identified an important task, the creation of mood boards, and have explored how industrial designers perceive the use of mixed reality to support their work by asking them to create a mood board on an existing mixed reality prototype. Participants were enthusiastic about the idea of creating mood boards in mixed reality.
