Pinterest’s Bright Brand Redesign Embraces Cutting Out & Pasting Ideas

Many moodboards, endless inspiration—that’s the sort of culture Pinterest has built over the years, and it’s exactly what the social network hopes to keep alive with a fun new brand identity.

No longer restricted to a color scheme, Pinterest’s official makeover by design studio Made Thought switches up its hues based on the inspiration source. That’s because its identity is defined by ‘Pinners’—what Pinterest calls its users—and their diverse interests and choices.

Resonative with the act of “pinning” to digital moodboards, the new Pinterest look embodies a cut-and-paste collage art style, according to Creative Review. The overhaul reminds users that elements of an idea can always be remixed into something they can call their own.

The colorful revamp includes a specially-drawn sans-serif typeface by Grilli Type, representing “playful touches of humanity with a literal lean into the future,” Made Thought explains.

“We set out to give Pinterest a brand identity as fluid, personal and creative as its own platform — driven by the meandering choices of the user and their ever-evolving dreams of what might be,” the studio describes.

“If someone’s takeaway is inspiration, then we’ve succeeded,” expresses Andreas Helin, Design Director at Pinterest. “We want people to walk away thinking, ‘I just got really inspired’ or ‘it got me to think in new ways.’”

Banksy Painting Is Now First Physical Art Sold In Crypto By Major Auction House

A renowned painting by the faceless street artist Banksy went off the market on Wednesday. This time, it was paid for in cryptocurrency—US$12.9 million worth of it.

The sale of the Love is in the Air canvas piece at Sotheby’s crystallized it as the first-ever physical artwork to be sold for cryptocurrency through a major auction house, The Hill reports. By association, the sale marked the debut of crypto payments for physical artwork at prominent auction houses.

The famous oil and spray paint work—which features a protester in a balaclava preparing to throw a bouquet of flowers—was projected to be sold for US$3 million to US$5 million, about 35 to 53 bitcoins, but the highest bid far surpassed the estimate and closed at US$12.9 million.

Per the terms of the sale, bidders could only offer USD, but the buyer would be given the choice to purchase the painting in either Bitcoin or Ether. It is unclear which cryptocurrency was eventually used to pay for the Banksy piece.
