    Hi Guys, don’t take this the wrong way but I think it would be best if you can at least attach a link to either web, Instagram or Facebook page of the artist. I know artist would appreciate it more if your feature can lead into profit, therefore helping these artist to continue producing beautiful art.

    • Hey Patrick, thanks for your feedback. I totally hear what you’re saying and I agree with you that it would be more beneficial for the creators if we were to link directly to their portfolios. However, as a blogger I have a slightly different view on things. Since the beginning of this blog I’ve always linked to where the image was found. And I do this for a couple of reasons. The primary reason is to send some traffic to the site/blog that found the image, just as a small thanks. That way we help each other to get noticed by more people and at the same time increase our visitor stats, which is important to us since that’s usually our primary source of revenue. There’s a lot of sites out there that copies our posts straight of, without as much as a note from where they found the info. We spend an enormous amount of time scanning the net and hand-picking the best pieces to be published on From up North. So when our posts get copied, we tend to get a tad pissed off. That’s just not something that serious blogs do. The second reason is that it would it would be far more time consuming to out and locate the original source for each piece.

      For quite some time now I’ve been using Pinterest as my primary tool to find, collect and organize everything that I find. So I’m aware that there’s a lot of links going to our Pinterest account and that people have to click two times to visit the source.

      The goal with From up North is not only to inspire fellow creatives but also to promote them. So for quite some time now I’ve been rather diligent on adding credit information to as many pieces as possible. More than most other design blogs, if you ask me. I’ve even developed a custom function where visitors can submit more information and a link to a specific piece. The little arrow below each piece takes you to the image in the archive, and below the image is a button labeled ”Submit credit information”. http://www.fromupnorth.com/archive/typography/42454/

      The whole process isn’t very logical at the moment and I’m actually working on a better solution. Something that will hopefully be a good solution for both From up North and all you great artists that makes the blog what it is.

      So I really appreciate your input and will definitely take it with me while continuing to develop the site.
      Thanks again!
