Technology Tuesday

I don't know if anyone else is as late to the cool technology trends as me....so you may already know the wonders of Pinterest.  I am OBsessed with a capitol OB!  It has opened up a whole new world of creativity and ideas from design, cooking, fashion, and pretty much everything else under the sun.  *Shameless plug time*  You can even follow Anderson Design Group on Pinterest.  Fun fact: did you know Pinterest was co founded by an architect?

Since we are talking creative technology,  I'd also like to share my new designing time saving love - Olioboard.  It is the easiest mood board creator eva.  I used to create image boards in Photoshop, no more!  In a matter of minutes I have created boards like this:

Now my example is the simple of simplest mood boards out there, but does a really good job of getting an idea across to a client.  

Once I get down and dirty I could create boards like this (from asite2bhold):

Gotta love technology.  Unless our world ends up like in Terminator or the Matrix, but we've got a good 100-150 years before that happens :)
