Pattern Pulp: Finding Color Inspiration On Pinterest

Popular photo-sharing website might become an influential source for designers and artists alike.

I’m a huge fan of Pinterest. In addition to making mood boards for cataloging, I get a nice dose of inspiration from the ongoing feed, much like I do from ffffound, SVPPLY and We Heart It.

Algorithms have woven this layout together, not humans, and for that I love the unpredictability of it all.
