Amazing one pager for Pinterest’s new Place Pins. The team who put this together gives us an in-depth story about how they built their new product. This is a great way any business should build an online product. Love the background, and how you can hover over a paragraph to see you wrote it – gives a very personal touch. Great work team!
Over the past year, we noticed more and more people were using Pinterest to plan trips and collect their favorite places around the world. We decided we wanted to make that process better through Place Pins, which let you add a map to any of your boards.
To help people learn more about how we work at Pinterest, we wanted to share the story behind Place Pins. Building a location-based product is a huge undertaking that can take many years to get right, and we wanted to make something that was beautiful, useful and different from other products right out of the gate. A small team of engineers and designers set out to figure out how we could accomplish this. We’re still planning to add lots more to the product, but we’re proud of what we’ve done so far.
