If you love design inspiration, you should be on Pinterest. This free service has really taken off and designers everywhere are using it to collect and archive examples of great design. Whether you’re a typography nut, need some ideas for design books to read, or want some inspiration for out of the box brochure ideas, there are designers on Pinterest who are no doubt pinning exactly what you’re looking for.

Much like, Twitter, the key to enjoying Pinterest is to find and follow users that share your interests. The trick here is that while every user has multiple “boards,” only some of them are actually design related. We’ve spent hours and hours hunting and have found over two hundred of the best Pinterest boards that designers should find useful. Read on to check them out!

    Thanks for this big collection! ♥ I was trying to find some of this kind of boards but it is really time consuming!

    If you allow self-advertising I’ll shamelessly take this chance. My all pins focus on web design (great websites & typography), branding (logotypes & packaging design) and advertising. You can find those five boards @ https://pinterest.com/mathaeus/ .
