As a kid, one of my hobbies was collecting articles and then putting them in this nice binder. These articles were mainly comic strips and funny stories but to me they were important enough to scour in-numerous newspapers and magazines to find my favorite ones. As I grew older these articles were replaced by photos and write ups about my favorite bands and sport stars. However, the joy was always the same.
When I first got to know about Pinterest I felt the same joy rushing back. No more bookmarking links, no more making doc files with list of online stuff I wanted to remember.
Unlike Twitter and Facebook, Pinterest allows you to only focus on what you like to do. No worrying about follows or yearning for likes, this is the way social networks should be.
Through my Pinterest page I collect awesome inspirations and collections of logo’s, branding ideas, illustrations and other design based stuff.
Now it might be true that 70% of the users are women and almost 50% are fashion and food related, however, you can find anything in there. anything at all.
So if you haven’t started by now, you are missing out on some quality curation opportunities !!
A friend told me to look into a brand called TAIKA, by Indian designer Poonam Bhagat. I was pleasantly surprised when I reviewed her collections. You might not know this about me, but I am a big art fan and while most teens were struggling not to fall asleep during art history class back in the day, I was secretly enjoying every second of it.
