Pinterest is a virtual pin board. It allows people to collect images from across the internet that interest and inspire them. When you see the symbol on a website then you can click it to share an image to your Pinterest account.
“Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.” Pinterest website
HU12 Online has set up a Pinterest account to collect POSTERS that have been used in the area.
Quite often, lot of effort goes into designing posters – then after the event they are designed to promote, they are taken down – or worse still allowed to fade and discolour on a noticeboard somewhere! But not any more! We will be collecting local posters and saving them for posterity!
We have just started the collection which consists of old and current posters. Posters? Nay! – Works of art!
