Lately I’ve been interested in the pintrest website and what it holds for people; especially those who work in the visual merchandising industry. The manager in my internship comes up with many great ideas for the displays of the store and I always have to ask her where she comes up with these great ideas. Finally, she turned to me and said “pintrest”. I’ve used pintrest before for looking up artwork but never to find ideas for visual merchandising. So what did I do? I went onto pintrest and typed in “visual merchandising display”. Low and behold thousands of visual ideas for displays popped up and I was amazed at some of the ideas on the site. In fact, many of the ideas my manager shows at work were on the site plus many more. I found myself inspired by the thousands of ideas and was able to use some of them in my visuals at work as well as in school. So check out pintrest. You’ll be amazed at what you find.
