Love color? You have to see this pop-up color museum
The Color Factory is a two-story pop-up museum in San Francisco created by a group of artists and is designed to make visitors smile.

Check out this mesmerizing video explaining the different exhibits. We’re inspired!
Pinterest rolls out video advertisements
This week, Pinterest joined the growing number of social media companies that now offer video advertisements. More specifically, Pinterest is taking a cue from Facebook and now allowing companies to advertise with autoplay videos, placing the ads within users’ search results and feeds on the popular social media site. Pinterest is a different platform from sites like Facebook or Twitter in that users go to Pinterest not for social interaction but for inspiration or guidance with DIY projects. This differentiation allows digital marketers to create highly targeted, relevant ads for audiences designed to capture the attention of Pinners.
Have a great weekend!
