Where Inspiration Starts

Buamai was conceived by YouWorkForThem founder/director Michael Paul Young in 2008 as an online repository for unique or inspirational found images. Mainly for graphic design and typographic related material, the collection grew to encompass the humorous, the reflective, the obscure and the just-plain-strange. Buamai was the first of its kind to have an iOS application, now discontinued due to repeated cases of censorship by Apple. Buamai now encompasses contributions from a worldwide collective of artists, graphic designers, architects and fashion designers, and has become one of the most active image-based blogs online.
Buamai and its curators make no claim to hold any copyright(s) to the content posted here. The purpose of the blog is simply to post interesting found images, along with available history or information, with the goal of promoting great design. When an image is found, its original source will be documented and made available. If you are the owner of an image that is posted here and wish it to be removed, just contact us and let us know and we'll gladly respect your wishes.
