Pinterest pins

Pins in the picture? 

Yes!
In fact that's what we do: putting pins in pictures. To hold them into place. Into one place. Into our place.

Why should we do that?
Because out of all the given information on one subject, we are interested in, we want to have an overview on what we find the top of the bill, the icing on the cake, the number ones.

To be clear, pins are not the actual inspiration sources. In my opinion they are rather a reflection of where they stand for. A bookmark and redirection.

Twenty-first century designer's tool.
So once I was immersed into the world of surface (pattern) design, Pinterest became more interesting to me. In fact, I think it is THE internet tool for designers who are actually, collectors of ideas, inspirational themes, items, topics, and other bits & pieces.
Visual bookmarks in the virtual world gathered together in a stylish, elegant, smooth and smart way. What else do we want as designer?

A joint winner.
When you should walk along my boards, 9 out of 10, you will stumble upon the label inspirational.
And that is what my pins all have in common, they inspire me to create!

They make me impatient to take it as a starting point for a fresh design and make it my own. Mingling it with my own ideas, finds and fingerprints.

Our pins in the spotlight. This post is an introductory to a new reoccurring blog theme. Where, in each post, I will highlight a pin-board, which might be interesting to you.

Give me the pleasure and let me introduce our pins to you, our boards, our Pinterest boards. The reflection of our style, our interests and inspiration sources.

In this introductory post, I'll show you a sneak peek of my recently pinned pins.
