Here’s my updated flavors.me profile. Yes, I’m virtually “everywhere” across the web. At least in a lot of networks that have to do “something with design” or offer a great way to connect your different profiles on various websites and networks. In my opinion it’s a good idea for every artist to use all these social media. Not only do they offer a simple way to set up and maintain a great-looking microsite, account or whatever, but they also help you to be found by others more easily: While your own website might not have a high ranking in search engines yet, these networks have lots of members and because of that a high number of visitors and thus a good ranking in Google etc.
I recently discovered the latest online tool to save and share web content – clipboard.com. While other services were just shut down (like clipmarks.com and amplify.com) I think clipboard.com has a great concept and thus the potential to become successful. At the moment it’s still in some sort of beta phase and you need an invitation to join it. However, I think as soon as it’s open to everybody and more people hear about it, it might become the next big thing. The only question (unfortunately for everything this is the essential point) is how it’s supposed to be financed but I definitely like it!
If you’re already using it, follow me at www.clipboard.com/design – Obviously I’ll primarily post all sorts of great pieces of design I discover across the web: everything from photography to streetart, industrial design, architecture, fashion and typography – not only to save all the inspirations I find for myself, but to share it with others too.
