What’s New in Photos & Design
Inside Flipboard / April 11, 2012
Welcome to a new series we’re starting today in which we’ll be highlighting recent additions to particular categories in our Content Guide. (Tap the red ribbon to start.) Here you’ll find don’t-miss sections that we think you’ll want to add to your Flipboard.
Up first: Photos & Design—one of the most popular areas of Flipboard.
Beautiful/Decay: With its emphasis on experimental, grotesque and innovative art, the LA-based has long been a staple of Flipboard Picks. Recent posts include â€œRobert Fontenot’s Bread Dough Sculptures,â€ â€œNicolai Howalt’s Car Crush Studies,â€ â€œNychos’ Head Splitting Graffiti.â€
Contemporist: This daily source for architects and interior designers is a showcase of new products and projects. With building materials as diverse as the surrounding scenery, even people not in the industry will drool over these impeccable structures. Recent posts feature a house built into a hill, coniferous pine furniture and a most unusual shopping mall in Malaysia.
Galleries: One of the most beautiful sections on Flipboard, this new curated section offers nothing but full-page galleries from some of the most visual curators on the Web—people like @mymodernmet, @beautifuldecay, @inspirefirst, @fubiz, @thevisualnews and many more. This is Flipboard eye candy at its best.
InspireFirst: Its mantra is â€œsharing inspiration with the worldâ€ but InspireFirst is particularly focused on whetting the creative classes—web designers, painters, photographers, architects, fashion designers. Recent posts include â€œSeven of the World’s Most Interesting Installation Art,â€ â€œAmazing Light Trail Photography,â€ â€œFantasy Architecture by Nomata Minoru.â€
Photojournalism: We recently took the news-oriented photography feeds out of our Photos section and created a new Photojournalism section devoted to on-the-ground pictures from outlets like @guardian, @npr, @newyorker Photo Booth and Atlantic In Focus.
The Visual News : This blog celebrates â€œartists who are doing great workâ€ and in doing so provides an interesting survey of developments in art, design, technology and data visualization. Recent posts include â€œMixing Landscapes Into the Human Form,â€ â€œGerman Clubs After Everyone Leaves,â€ â€œMagic Photography from the Woods to the Sea.â€
