1/16/2013

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Following its mission to be a design partner to the architecture and design community, Milliken’s global floor covering division has introduced a continuing education unit (CEU) course that focuses on Pinterest.


Pinterest, one of the fastest growing social media sites, is a virtual pinboard where users collect, organize and share images of the things they find interesting. It is a great tool for the architecture and design industry, as it embraces a visual and creative process.


Milliken’s CEU course – “Pinterest and the A&D Community: Sharing and inspiring in a digital world” - focuses on the rise of Pinterest as a useful resource for the architecture and design community, and how it impacts architects and designers as a whole.


In the course, participants will:

  • Learn a general overview of Pinterest, the site’s history and impact on society.
  • View the architecture and design community’s presence on Pinterest.
  • Explore how the architecture and design industry is using Pinterest to further creativity and design.
  • ​​Learn how to register on Pinterest, organize boards, pin and share images and demonstrate pin etiquette.


Learn how Pinterest can serve as an endless source of inspiration and help you connect and share ideas in the ever-evolving architecture and design industry. This CEU is approved for .01 CEU credit through IDCEC (ASID, IIDA and IDC), as well as AIA. For more information on this course, please email millikencarpet@milliken.com.
