Still in its invite only stages, Pinterest is a newer social network that has been growing rapidly since launching in closed beta back in March of 2010. Brace yourself, some of the stats I am about to share with you might catch you off-guard.
Who’s Using Pinterest
According to a TechCrunch post and data they received from comScore, Pinterest has just hit 11.7 million unique monthly U.S., crossing the 10 million mark faster than any other standalone website in history. Furthermore, the average Pinterest user spends an average of 98 minutes per month on the website.
With all of that being said, I would like to share with you 3 Pinterest boards worth following if you are a website design professional looking for some inspiration. I am not going to get into the ins and outs of Pinterest but rather share with you some boards that I have found in my Pinterest journeys and that have inspired me in one way or another.
3 of My Favorite Pinterest Boards for Design Inspiration
1. Number one on the list is Brandon Lesley’s Graphic Design and Typography board. Brandon has racked up 389,868 followers and has posted to this board over 2,000 times. There are a number of gems within this Pinterest board.
2. Number two on the list is Junia Isabel’s Graphic Design board. This board has 815 followers and has been pinned to 157 times.
3. Third on my list is siriah’s illustration + graphic art board. This is one of my favorite boards and contains a lot of VERY unique artwork and is very inspirational in my opinion. This board has 1057 followers and 831 pins, enjoy! I highly recommend taking a look at some of her other 58 boards when you have some time.
