With some of us here being creative types, and some of us being those continually scouting for new ideas (otherwise called nosey or being ahead of the game), we love Pinterest. It’s a visual feast of information and inspiration for innovative minds. It’s a useful place to store and organise ideas as and when you find them on the web, whether these are articles, blogs or simply beautiful images. It combines two of the most compelling elements of social media, visual content and sharing who you are. Oh, and everything looks really pretty… We love Pinterest so much that Vanessa created the collaborative pinboard “something blue” for us to pin things that we see in the creative landscape with theblueballroom in mind. It’s very easy to get swamped by various websites, bookmarks and email reminders of new discoveries. With Pinterest we can just pin what we like and refer to it later! It’s very much becoming a referral for us when brainstorming for our clients, as well as being a great research tool into brands and lifestyles.
As for me, my busiest pin board is one on infographics… think that’s another ‘we love’ item in itself!
