While I’ve know about Pinterest for some time now I never really took the time to get into it and see if it was for me. On the suggestion of a friend I spent some time on there and I have to admit it – I’m hooked.

Unlike Delicious and StumbleUpon, which I use daily, Pinterest allows me to collect information in a more visual form. And isn’t visual what graphic design is all about? It’s really amazing how your boards start to take shape. At first you aren’t quite sure what type of things to post, but you pick it up quickly. I will always be looking for anything that relates to design or that I find inspiring in some way. But… Pinterest also lets me put a bit of myself on my boards. I get to save recipes, craft projects, and whatever else hits me at the moment.

I have decided to share my Pinterest boards with you all. Take them at face value, literally. They are all pinned because something about them interested me. Me. If you see something that connects with you, repin it or leave a comment.

One last suggestion. If you are already using Pinterest or decide to finally check it out, I recommend that you click on different user’s boards and view their profile as a whole. It’s amazing how you get a feel for the person based solely on the visual impact of their pins. Some people are drawn to design and color. Others have a very muted take on what they like. From a visual standpoint, I find this fascinating.

So go check out Pinterest! See if it’s something that interests you. You can check out my boards at http://pinterest.com/gretboyd/.

As they say on the site… Happy Pinning!

As I browse through my emails and RSS feeds this morning I’m finding a pattern in what interests me – anything and everything that is INSPIRING. I love color. I enjoy its use and combinations and found this article very inspiring. It would be fantastic if, as a designer, we were allowed to follow our creative flow and run with color. But, alas, that opportunity rarely happens.

Immerse yourself in color and ponder all the possibilities…
