Pinterest: Celebrating 100k+ monthly views!

Pinterest is integral to my design process, alongside other online moodboard and scrapbook sites. It helps me to keep an eye on trend, be inspired by the incredible creative community and keeps me pushing for unique and creative designing. I love being able to curate pins that reflect my aesthetic. It's amazing that over 100,000 people every monthly are viewing profile and are pinning the images - including my own designs. I've been actively building this from 8K/month so Im very pleased with the progress. It's a great marketing tool that you can use really effectively if you spend the time building it up.

Other sites that I use similarly, include: Typewolf, Behance, Dribbble.

Congratulations to SKHB!

Full project details will be added to the LED portfolio page soon.

COVID-19: Business as usual

COVID-19 lockdown started for me last week as I moved my things out of my studio and set up to work from home. I'm incredibly lucky to be working in the digital space so will be continuing work as normal as I possibly can.

It's been such a tough time for many families and businesses due to COVID-19, but it's been amazing to see neighbours talking to each other, strangers saying hi on your daily walks and online communities growing in strength. Still a lot to navigate through, but hope you and yours are staying well ✨ ⁠
