“Pinterest is an invaluable tool for those of us in the design world,” said Derringer. “We communicate visually. There was a huge need for a visual tool like Pinterest to help us not only share the beautiful things we love to look at, but bookmark, categorize and create inspiration for ourselves and clients. I can't wait to dive in and share some "Pinsights" with attendees!”
