I am actually working today and wanted to bring a little workspace inspiration to your Sunday.
I am partnering with FANCY to bring you innovative designs and objects (that can be purchased) and will be linked directly from my site. FANCY is a site that lets you browse cool & inspiring images but it also lets you purchase a lot of the items! Most of them are unique and designed thoughtfully- with lots of items for home, kitchen, fashion & lifestyle.
This is the kind of stuff that makes me mad about this website. It’s so ridiculous to not give credit where credit is due. You’re curating content, not creating it, and you need to give people access to the place where the content was actually created. This is such a crappy attitude. “I can source, but I just don’t want to.” Instant unfollow.
I think it's time for a new contest, don't you think?
Visual culture is what tumblr is all about- so Contest #2 will be…
Best Inspiring Design Image
What am I looking for?
ANY image will be accepted, ONE image only, and YOU must be the original creator.
A personal design/photographic image (no images from outside websites or other authors) that best showcases design in an inspiring way. I am looking for original work. The image does not have to be of your personal work per se but has to be yours. (violation of this rule will automatically cancel your posts and chances to win). ***Yes, it can be a photograph of something, as long as its a design. IE. an image you took of a building that is original work and inspiring.
To enter, please send ONE image to email@example.com, no larger than 1mb, jpeg, gif or png, with a TITLE of your image (these can be as creative as you want!), name and your tumblr url. Contest ends Wednesday Sept. 14th and I will feature posts until Sept 22nd.
What’s the prize? Bragging rights of winning, your image will be featured on here, twitter and facebook, and in the architecture page if appropriate, you can ask me anything you want and oh yeah, a design book! (winner pays postage).
So let’s go, break out that creativity and show Tumblr what you’ve got!
