How Do You Use Pinterest In Your Design Work?

Pinterest is a great visual tool (organized into "boards" of images linked to websites) for museum/exhibit/design folks.

I'd like to gather your recommended Pinterest boards (as well as your Pinterest tips and tricks) for a future ExhibiTricks post (and free downloadable document) that can serve as a Pinterest compendium and resource.

One great way to use Pinterest is as a place to gather images and inspirations for projects in process (here's an example Pinterest board for a dinosaurs exhibition I'm working on.)

Pinterest can also be a great resource when looking for examples of interesting exhibition designs or ideas.  The indefatigable Elaine Gurian has a fantastic Pinterest site called "Museum Educator" that has a number of thematic boards related to topics such as "Museum Architecture" and "Label Ideas."

Another Pinterest favorite is the "Recognition" board which has super examples of donor recognition signage (with a bit of wayfinding, too!)

So click on over to Pinterest for some  inspiration, and then tell us about your favorite museum/exhibit/design Pinterest boards, as well as your best Pinterest tips and tricks, in the "Comments" section below.

Don't miss out on any ExhibiTricks posts! It's easy to get updates via email or your favorite news reader. Just click the "Sign up for Free ExhibiTricks Blog Updates" link on the upper right side of the blog.
