Buick design contest courts younger buyers on PinterestThu, 04 Apr 2013
Interior designer, bed-and-breakfast owner and blogger Michael Wurm Jr. recently pinned his way to developing a custom interior for the Buick Encore.
“It's a blogger's dream come true. From start to finish, I was checking out what the other participants were doing and I thought everyone had a strong design,” said Wurm. “I had no idea whose design would be selected because you really got to see everyone's style and I was in love with all of them. I have a totally different perspective of Buick now.”
That last line is proof that the Wurm's pinboard, which featured cool aquas, sprouting greens, chevron patterns, and beach and country-living photos, was selected as the winner by a majority of the panel members.
All totaled, "Pinboard to Dashboard" garnered more than 17 million unique visitors, followers or users across Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the blogosphere.
