25 Creatives & Designers You Should Be Following on Pinterest4 min read

Think Pinterest is only for finding epic cereal bar recipes, DIY mason jar crafting ideas and cat memes? Think again.

As the Internet’s de factor inspiration engine (more than 50 billion pins have been shared to date), Pinterest is a hotbed for designers and business owners who are curating beautiful boards at the intersection of strategy, design and, of course, self-promotion.

Take a look at how these 25 creatives make Pinterest their own.
