The Power of Pinterest by Internet Marketing Inc.

The Power of Pinterest

Pinterest has become largely popular in the past 2 years by a number of different audiences, and why not? It has dozens of categories ranging from cars & motorcycles all the way to food & drink. Pinterest is a huge social media tool that not enough businesses are taking advantage of, and I say this from experience because over 50% of the traffic that comes to this site is from Pinterest.

Thanks to the crew at Internet Marketing Inc. for creating this infographic below that shows the power of Pinterest with actual statistics. Hopefully this will give some of you the inspiration and motivation to start using Pinterest as a business tool rather than a late night boredom cure.

Visual and UX Design Trends for 2013

It’s always best practice for web and graphic designers to stay with the current trends, otherwise you will more than likely be surpassed by other designers who are with the trends.

Some of the biggest design trends right now are simplicity, flat colors, SVG images (scale-able vectors for browsers), typography, and responsive design to name a few. Awwwards has put together a nice infographic to show what the current design trends are for 2013 below.
