I got super annoyed last month because I tried to sign up for a Tumblr account, and thedesignfiles.tumblr was taken. I got all grumpy and went to see who had ‘stolen’ my name. OH. It was me. In a brief moment of forward-thinking many months ago, I had absent-mindedly made a Design Files Tumblr account, and then promptly forgotten all about it.
Wow I totally outsmarted myself with that one.
ANYWAY. The point is… I now have a Tumblr! I know, I know… bit late in the game… but I didn’t realise how cool it was until I discovered the ‘archive’ function. OMG! so great. A virtual pin-board… so easy to use – just one click! No captions, credits or links to worry about. Everything is done for you! For me I guess it is a special and more personal eye-candy archive, somewhere I can save all the gorgeousness I come across without necessarily having to research, explain and blog it ‘properly’.
Please check out my comparatively measly Tumblr page and see what you think. And tell me all your Tumblr tips because I am still getting my head around it…
One of my favourite recently tumbled things… incredible timber toys / sculptures by US-based designer Mark Giglio (aka Pen Pencil Stencil). (These amazing Japanese-inspired timber toy trees are all sold out of course! Sorry!)
