Archiver’s Pinterest Misstep Highlights Social Sharing Challenges

A minor brouhaha this week involving some Archiver’s stores’ use of content from Pinterest has once again highlighted some of the challenges for companies of navigating the internet’s social sharing websites and trends.

They apparently wanted to highlight their use of Pinterest to interact with their customers, and so they decided to encourage their stores to put their in-house Pinterest content on display in stores with an “As Seen On Pinterest” label on it. Sounds straightforward.

What actually happened was a bit different, however. Several high profile industry designers discovered that their work was on display in one of the stores, without their permission, with the Pinterest label on it.

Pinterest Inspiration | Polka Dots

Pinterest continues to be a huge source of inspiration for me and this week, I was drawn towards these simple polka-dot cocktail napkins.

These green and white polka-dot napkins just scream summer and fun to me. These napkins are from BHLDN and I love so much about this photo. The colors – green and white – feel fresh and inviting and the layered patterns really bring energy to the photo. I couldn’t wait to translate that to a layout. Continue Reading →
