As a creative person, it’s very natural to get stuck at some point during the process of making art. Thankfully, there’s Pinterest to help you get out of that creative rut.

I first started Pinterest out of an attempt to create boards that represented my wishlists – outfits, and dream destinations – but then grew as I added recipes and DIY tutorials that served as a few of the categories I constantly repinned for future reference.


Nowadays, I look to Pinterest as an important tool for my lettering process. As a letterer, most people think that I start drawing at once – but actually, that’s not the case. I always do research and create moodboards to determine the look and feel of my work, and this is where Pinterest comes in. Pinterest serves as a visual bookmarking tool that helps me discover and save creative ideas.

Follow Abbey Sy’s board Type & Lettering on Pinterest.

My Type & Lettering board was born out of an attempt to be more “organized” in terms of filtering my design vision for my work. What most people don’t know about me is that I pay a lot of attention to the ideation process before creation. This helps me create a solid framework of what I want my work to look like.

Over time, I was not only able to ease my process of gathering inspiration & ideas, but I also discovered the specific style I wanted to achieve.
