If you haven’t explored Pinterest yet, it’s a veritable feast for the eyes...highly addictive too!
Pinterest is a social media platform often described as a “virtual pinboard” of photos and imagery, allowing users to organize and share all of the cool things they find online. Users “pin” images to topical “boards” curated to showcase personal tastes and interests (perfect for the organization-obsessed). Users expand their community and wealth of visual inspiration by “following” the boards of other users. Image pins retain the link to their original website, blog or photo-stream and can be “repinned” onto another user’s board.
SPDG recently created its debut pinboard on Pinterest. We’re excited to share what inspires us and build collections of all things related to textile and surface pattern design—styles, motifs, color palettes, textures, artists, etc. We’d love to collaborate with YOU, dear reader. If you’re on Pinterest, please follow “Surface Pattern Design Guild” and, if you’d like, add SPDG as a contributor to your own design pinboards.
Need help finding motifs or color direction? Let the visual brainstorm begin. The pinboards we work on together will show up on both your page and ours, and we can create a fantastic design resource. If you’d like to collaborate on boards that SPDG has already started, feel free to contact us and we’ll add you as a contributor. We’d love to see what you’re into!
