Fotoviva on Tumblr

So we decided to open an official Tumblr account for the Fotoviva brand. Have you heard of it? More to the point, do you have a Tumblr account? It’s one of the largest social sites on the internet right now and one of the reasons we decided to begin using it is because Tumblr is a very image oriented blogging platform. And who has an amazing range of great looking images on their site? Yep, right first time – Fotoviva!

Take a look at our Fotoviva Tumblr blog here and follow us if you have an account. We’ll mainly be posting awesome images (and not just ours!) so it’s well worth a look if you like funny pictures, creative designs or scenes of natural beauty. 

We’ll also be writing a few interesting articles about art, prints and design so if that kind of thing interests you it will be well worth it. Our first blog was discussing large wall art so if your home is in need of some big wall prints then this guide will give you some great tips for choosing the right kind of picture. 

If you have a tumblr account let us know in the comments and we’ll take a look at it. Let’s get Tumbling!
