For the longest time, flipping through magazines and traveling to new destinations have been enriching for designers and artists alike. Although different than usual, web apps and platforms have made it convenient for people to hunt for visual inspirations online. A valuable resource for designers and architects, Pinterest empowers its users to curate their visuals, experiences, and inspirations through images pinned and shared within the platform. Allowing every user to express their personality and creative vision, Pinterest is a helpful tool that democratizes the design process and helps further evolve initial ideas. 

Just like typical bulletin boards, Pinterest allows you to share your clippings from the web while its intuitive interface automatically suggests ideas related to your pinned images. Despite the ability of the platform to curate pins related to your project, redundant entries become inevitable as people pin the same things.  Overwhelming to navigate at times, Pinterest can also pull you into a rabbit hole of endless scrolling and never-ending options. That is why having a go-to list of Pinterest accounts that you can tap for inspiration is important especially if you are looking to deliver project concepts quickly. Here are our favorites so far:

Pinterest is flooded with a never-ending supply of ever-changing ideas, content, and visuals. From architecture to interior design, to art and lifestyle, Pinterest has become an essential platform for clients to elucidate their wants and for designers to expound their visions. However, despite the advantages that Pinterest can offer, AI image production and redundant images make it challenging to find reliable samples and authentic projects. Although AI can help fuel creativity and interpret concepts, it can also mislead and disappoint clients when it comes to realizing the practicality and feasibility of these ideas. Thanks to online publications, designers can easily cross-check the authenticity of the images and the accuracy of their concepts.
